No Vikings game, no excuses today people.

Can the Twins win 6straight to end 2018?

Prediction: Mauer comes to bat in bottom 8th, lines a home run off of right field foul pole, wins game. Curtain call to follow.

2. Leury Garcia (S) SS
3. Daniel Palka (L) RF

5. Matt Davidson ® 1B
6. Nicky Delmonico (L) LF
7. Welington Castillo ® C

I like when they have an opening montage. It makes the game feel important and I feel like all sports used to do this more often.

If this is an attempt to conjure Riverbrian one last time in 2018, I approve :)

Long top of the first. Too many chances to make plays, that didn't pan out.

Hildenberger's in. I'm worried now.

 

EDIT ADD: And I walk away from the computer for 15 seconds and a run's in with two on, no outs. Need Rogers, stat.
