Good afternoon Twins fans and welcome back to more Game Thread fun! The Twins are going for the sweep today against their division rivals the Kansas City Royals...Will the Twins take game three to complete the sweep? Tune into the game to find out and don't forget to participate with the rest of the Game Thread fanatics to experience the thrill and excitement of Twin's baseball.

The Twins own a .600 win percentage at the moment and have a 4.5 game lead over the Chicago White Sox. If the Twins can get through some of the injuries plaguing it's pitching staff I think we can jump into an even more comfortable position by the All-Star break. This team really does have some intriguing possibilities as the season progresses. I feel much more comfortable about our depth at certain positions should more injuries come along...

Bailey Ober steps back on the mound today to face-off against the Royals right hander Brady Singer. It also looks like we will be playing the "B" lineup today as Correa, Buxton and Gio are playing left bench. 

Hope you enjoy your Sunday!

I can't say I care for both Buck AND CC sitting at the same time. If you're going to rest them, stagger it so they aren't sitting out the same game(s). Hopefully they aren't in the dug out wearing sweats and could play if it was necessary.  It's definitely nice to see Larnach back.

Obviously not a very good lineup (on paper) but was to be expected after Buxton played 2 straight in CF and the Twins won both games. Playing with house money now, as the kids say. Interested to see Gordon at short (not in a good way, though). And obviously very glad to have Larnach back. He was crushing the ball before his injury.

Royas 5, Twins 2

I don't think Polanco has signed on to the lower launch angle, use the whole field approach. 

Polanco is never any good until July when he starts hitting .450 with a hr every 6 abs.

These damn GIDP's have got to stop! Kep cues one to 3rd and the guy doubles us up again!

Danny Coulombe completed a rehab "start" for AA-Wichita, throwing the first inning, allowing 1 runner on a walk but allowing no runs or hits. He didn't strike anyone out. I assume he gets one more appearance, but maybe not. I assume he will replace Megill or Cano on the active roster sometime next week. Matt Canterino is following Danny.
