Originally published at The Tenth Inning Stretch

This is the third installment in this series. You can find all of them here in reverse chronological order. I will be doing these approximately weekly or at the end of every 2 series.

In the last 2 series against the Rays and Red Sox the Twins as a team hit an underpowered .241/.326/.310 with 1 HR and scored 21 runs. This helped them finish only 1-5 in these series.

The Twins Hitter of the Week was:

Joe Mauer

.409/.500/.409 9 H, 4 RBI, 2 R in 26 plate appearances

As with the hitting, the Twins' pitching in the last 2 series was equally responsible for their 1-5 record against the Rays and the Red Sox. As a team, the Twins pitched to a 6.23 ERA, allowing 58 hits (including 9 home runs, 11 doubles and a triple,) 38 Runs (all but 2 earned) in 52 innings, facing 224 batters. They threw 891 total pitches and 553 of them were strikes. They walked 17 and struck out 40. This results in a 1.44 WHIP, 6.9 K/9 and 2.4 K/BB.

The Twins' Pitcher of the Week was:

Anthony Swarzak

2 Games, 5 IP, 0 R, 2 H, 0 BB, 4K
