Just read that a team other than the Twins set a home run record this year.Dodgers hit 22 in past 5 games.Curious what the Twins best 5 game tally is.

Proper strategy to use Rogers in the eighth. All three should be available tomorrow. They weren't perfect, but got the outs they needed to get.

While I've been very critical of Baldelli's bullpen management lately, the way he worked the pen tonight was perfect. Using Rogers in the eighth was exactly what metrics dictated.

 

No closer. Play the matchup. And that's what he did.

Good win for the Twins.I bet on them again tonight, and i have to admit it adds to the nail biting at the end of the game, when you have a few bucks on the line too. :o

I have to give Schoop some credit for coming through. Massive home run.

Add to that, the double play that only his arm makes, and the pick up the middle that, again, only his arm makes. He’s the MVP of this game.

Without a doubt.
