Game Thread: Twins vs. Royals, 5/28/22 @ 1:10PM CT

Good afternoon Twins fans and fellow game threaders! After last nights offensive explosion by the Twins I think this team is just now starting to get hot from an offensive perspective. 

Can we score another 10+ runs today? Tune in to find out! I fully expect the Twins will score a ton of runs today as they get deeper into the Royals bullpen.

I would love to stick around and post some witty comments and sage observations but I have a tee time today at 12 noon. It will be my first round of the year so I'm not expecting much...As sure as I am the Twins will dominate today I'm not so sure about my golf game. Can I keep the ball in the fairway? Can I avoid the dreaded "3" putt? Did I lose my ability to chip after this long cold winter? I guess I'll find out soon enough. One thing I am sure about my round today...I will not be timid about cursing at my ball or my clubs....

Twins right hander Chris Archer (0-1, 3.86 ERA) steps up against the Royals righty Brady Singer (1-0, 1.83 ERA) today. Looking forward to seeing how Archer holds up. I think he's got some good stuff still left in the tank. I like the lineup today as well!

Good luck with your round today. Wish I could be on the course, rather than doing a bunch of "honey do" stuff. I still think that Arraez should be the regular lead off hitter for this team. Let's put another 10 spot on the board today, and hope that Archer can go more than his usual 4 innings.

I don't know if they'll need him. It looks like Witt Jr. is fast becoming the Twin slayer

I was reading a thread yesterday about how patient Twins hitters were this year working counts. 12 pitch inning for Singer. But he was pounding the strike zone.

Giving Benentindi a cookie with an 0-2 count was the big mistake of the inning. Twins can't seem to get that guy out.

Another Witt xbh and now we're back down.

Archer looking more and more like just a warm body/placeholder out there.
