Odorizzi had a glove, too. That's how you play pitcher, Dobnak. See the ball, catch the ball. Use your glove. Also... he actually looks for the ball.

That's the second time Soler has reached on catcher's interference. What's going on, Avila?

Good grief now we're giving away free passes on catcher's interference? More than once?

Note to Dick Bremer: The Royals are not a sister team to the Twins , they are a hated rival, and we need to treat them as such. If that bothers you maybe you could take Steve Physiocs job

I am fine not hating 'em.

Can't get 'em when they least suspect it if they always suspect ya...

That is the real joy about sibling rivalries.

Why did Dobnak start the 6th?

Some Molitor level pitching staff management there. Dobnak was lucky to get through the 5th.

I think if Soler wants a free pass that bad, next time up give him one, Nolan Ryan style

Same reason for catchers interference.

In my opinion, the Royals have never been a hated rival. I have always admired and deeply respected them. I can't even really think of a player that has played for them that I dislike. The White Sox and the Indians are the Twins' rivals.

Duffy is starting to worry me a little. Seems like his velo is not as fast.

Duffey gives up one run on the season and now he’s unraveling.

The Royals have been whiners and moaners this year when playing the Twins. Squash 'em.

He was only at like 76 pitches. Gave up an interference call and what most SS would have probably turned into a DP? I think he left with like 80 pitches? Had he got those two outs he'd still be in there.
