And apparently Richard is reading TD during the broadcast.

Jake should get out Odor-easy. Or maybe not ...

Triples are more fun than home runs; stolen bases are more fun than strikeouts; singles are more fun than walks.

Good work with Mazara, then a wild pitch. I think Garver should have caught it, although it was very high.

Odorizzi was almost out of it there. Awful wild pitch there. Twins give one back, just like Texas gave them a run earlier. Even steven I guess.

That's gotta be a passed ball on Garver, right? TV was saying WP?

Look back & be grateful, look ahead & be hopeful, look around & be helpful.

Well, the difference right now is that unearned run. Lately, if the difference is an unearned run, it's bad news for the Twins.

That's who Odorizzi is. Can't we just get used to the fact that he will rarely if ever make it into the 7th inning? We have a rested bullpen with Monday and Tuesday off.

Why do we keep running Ehire as if he’s fast?

Which team has made more outs on the bases so far this series? Both teams seem to just run into outs constantly.

 

Richard says that it appears Arraez missed the hit and run sign there.

Welp, if we had added some runs, Ehire wasn't going to contribute.

Apparently a hit-and-run was on, Arraez missed the sign. At least that's what it looked like in the Twins dugout.

You're going to do the wave? Huh.

 

edit: ninja'd. I should, you know, read the thread....

Well ... don't feel bad ... I was going to do that now ... as I'm just getting to this.
