Quick Note
I have been reaching out to try and do some good with these streams of Twins "baseball," and back a charity for the games. Whether it be a charity related to COVID-19 relief, feeding families, etc, if anyone knows of a charity we could help out message me directly.

 

Catch-up
Tough ballgame yesterday as the Twins drop game two 4-2 against Seattle, but still sit only 3.0 games back of Cleveland and will look to move ahead in the series with Jhoulys Chacin, who went 8 1/3 shutout innings his last start, against the ace of the Mariner rotation in Marco Gonzales.

Storylines
1. Gulp.. Rocco has to shift the lineup card to give some key players days off but someone who will stay in the lineup and play Right Field for the first time since 2018... Nelson Cruz.
2. We mentioned yesterday that the game might be a bullpen game but for now Rocco will go with Chacin to start but expect Dobnak and Romero to come in if needed. Chacin went 8 1/3 scoreless in his last start as Chacin looks for win #2 in front of the home faithful.
3. Last time the Twins faced off against Marco Gonzales, they won on March 31st, 2020 in Seattle in a 6-2 thumping.

The post-games for both 4/22 and 4/21 will be coming tonight after our doubleheader with Seattle and Boston. I elected to have a "rain-out," yesterday due to the 1st round of the NFL Draft so for those who are following along:

  • Game One: vs. Seattle 5pm
  • Game Two: vs. Boston 7pm
  • Post-game for 4/21,4/22, and 4/24 hopefully up by tonight.

Also have something special planned with a theme night for our doubleheader today so be sure to tune in!
