2012 Day-by-Day - April 20

Rate this Entry
Another comeback victory from the parent club. I have no research to back me, but it seems to me this team has had more success coming back late in games and not giving up. Given how much was talked about losing character guys, especially Cuddyer, this group has really shown some fight early in the season. There have been a handful games they had no shot in winning, but others they ended up losing that they had no business even being close. Tonight's another example. After a devastating home run by Longoria, Twins come back and get a huge 2 out hit. Willingham has shown the ability to come through in key situations. This 19 game stretch is winding down, and with the 3 game set against Boston at home not looking as tough as it did 3 weeks ago, this team could conceivably go 8-11 in that stretch. That, I would deem, as a success.

Down on the farm, as mentioned by other bloggers, Sano had a huge night. 4 hit night, including his first 3 doubles. With his size, funny that he hit a triple before a double. No home runs from him tonight, but 2 RBI and a run. On the season he is batting .314/.453/.765 for a 1.218 OPS. Now he is going to go through some rough patches, but for the start of his first full season year, he's really impressed. The Twins are very conservative with their prospects, but it will be something to watch in the summer to see how long they keep him in Beloit.

Also very interesting, and odd/meaningless note, every game the Rochester Red Wings have played this year, there has been a save. Pretty impressive, but again meaningless, for the first 16 games.

Here's today's recap:
