Pineda’s line might not end up looking good, but he’s pitched well.

I don’t like the chances of getting Abreu right here.

Eh, I'd leave Pineda out there. Our best arms were used up yesterday and the offense is showing no signs of life, so might as well let him get out of his own mess.

How does abreu not run there? With the two giants Sanó and Pineda anything can happen

Sanó is not a leadoff hitter.

Gotta leave Pineda out there. Other than the first inning he has been good

Career Game Thread Record: 23-9

 

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

Plonk with a little 7-iron punch there. We're getting guys on base, just need to start cashing in.

I've been critical, so I want to give credit where due: that was a really nice plate appearance by Polanco. Not one good pitch to hit. After two strikes, he probably figured he would see no fastballs, and went down and got a single anyway. This is in contrast to Sano's strikeout one batter earlier.

Dick's have a rough series at the mic. Stated that the run was going to score, forgetting that there was one out and the DP would have erased it.

 

/ edit - he's saying now he thought no chance at the DP. That means forgetting who the batter-runner was. :)

Twins catch a break and get a run...Marwin is slow. 

 

Like really slow.

 

He has the lowest sprint speed on the team at 24.3 FT/S.

 

For comparison, Sano runs 26.8 FT/S, 6th on the team

One of the best things I've seen tonight is that Rosario looked like he was having fun when he got to first base and talked to the dugout. Their body language has looked defeated the last few days.
