And of course that gets scored as a double, because no play is an error anymore. That counts as an earned run for Clippard.

I would have scored it a hit plus error, which still would have been an earned run. If Arraez fields that ball, it's a really difficult throw and if Polanco fields it he has to wait for Arraez to clear. Still, it shouldn't have gotten through and allowed Reyes to get to second.

At least the top.

 

I'm fine if we never reach the bottom.

Hey Taylor, maybe try to break a sweat next time, okay? You're making it boring.

Twins win!! The pitching was really good, and the bats did enough early. I'll take that win!

 

Until tomorrow,

 

Go Twins!!!

Safe to say I am the key to the Twins' success

Big win! It was important to get to Clevinger after what Beiber did yesterday.

 

And our pitching has given up 3 runs the past 3 games... good show!

You know what I just realized? The only two games the Twins have lost were the only two games I haven't watched.

 

I better watch some more baseball...

Everyone who stayed up for the ninth inning was a witness to history — Gonzalez tied an MLB record for putouts at first :)

We got a call on that K.

I thought the HP ump was excellent, but he missed that one. He also missed an obvious strike when Dobnak was pitching.

Actually, I thought the white circle for pitch trax was off on that. It tailed away, but I think it caught the edge of the zone before it tailed. It was an excellent pitch.

Then they didn't happen. Going for 58-0, baby!
