    Well thanks to the double play line out, we only went 0-2 that inning with RISP, instead of the 0-3 we would've gone without. So there's that. I've never seen so many infield line outs by the Twins as this year. Every game seems to have a couple of rockets. Maybe it's all the shifting teams are doing but probably just bad luck.

    Or they could try hitting the ball a little higher so it gets over of the infielders.

    No... It's just a different 2 out hitting problem.

    We've turned it into a 2-out at-batting problem

    The Rangers seem to be purposely getting to 2 outs the same way Mauer likes to hit with 2 strikes.

    Well played Ron Washington

    Sad but true at his current pace Joe will end up with 6 hr, 49 rbi and 123 k's.

    Got back 2. That is ok.
    Neither pitcher will probably go 5 innings at this rate.

    Not a bad half inning - the Twins can stay in this one if they can have a few more like that
