  1. The Twins opened a three-game series in Arlington with a nail-biter, beating the Rangers 7-5 in extra innings. José Berríos picked up a quality start and Luis Arráez hit a clutch triple in the 10th. Box Score Berríos: 6.0 IP, 6 H, 3 ER, 1 BB, 6 K (68,9% strikes) Home runs: Larnach (4) Top 3 WPA: Robles .311, Arráez .206, Jeffers .174 Win Probability Chart (via FanGraphs) Berríos has a tough start, but finishes off strong The game got busy in a hurry.

Minnesota loaded the bases before Texas starter Mike Foltynewicz could record an out, with Luis Arráez and Trevor Larnach drawing walks, and Jorge Polanco hitting a single in between. Nelson Cruz took advantage of that, finding the right field gap on a 0-2 sinker, and to put the first run on the board. The Te
  3. Bailey Ober had his best outing in the majors and the Twins once again showed they had some fight in them late, but the now reliever Matt Shoemaker allowed Houston to regain the lead with a two-run ninth and Minnesota drops the series opener against the Astros at Target Field. Box Score Ober: 5.0 IP, 7 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 7 K (71,2% strikes) Home Runs: Cruz (12), Sanó (13), Donaldson 2 (10) Bottom 3 WPA: Shoemaker -.352, Duffey -.174, Larnach -.130 Win Probability Chart (via FanGraphs) Some great news brought in some optimism for Twins fans earlier today.

The club announced that struggling starter Matt Shoemaker would be sent to the bullpen and rookie Bailey Ober would start tonight’s game. Could this mean that Shoemaker’s stint in Minnesota is close to an end? Ober took advantage of another opportunity, making his third start of the seaso
  5. Randy Dobnak started out with four very solid innings, but then a couple of really bad ones, combined with yet another poor offensive display against a lefty, put the game out of reach for Minnesota. Box Score Dobnak: 6.0 IP, 9 H, 6 ER, 1 BB, 3 K Home Runs: Garver (8) Bottom 3 WPA: Dobnak -.252, Donaldson -.165, Kirilloff -.083 Win Probability Chart (via FanGraphs) Making his second one of the season, Dobber cruised through the first four innings of play on only 43 pitches, 27 of which went for strikes.

Even though he still allowed a ton of hard-hit balls, only two of those actually became hits. Besides, the balls that weren’t hit hard were hit for really weak contact, as he averaged 87.8 exit velocity through four. It’s not like the offense was completely unproduct
  7.

During his stint with the Saints, he had three starts, two of which were really solid, giving him a 3.38 ERA. From the looks of his outing tonight, the confidence he got from that Triple-A stint made all the difference. It only took Dobber
  8. The offense took care of this game with an amazing nine-run fourth inning. But perhaps the greatest story of the night for the Twins was the incredibly solid start from Randy Dobnak, who alongside the bullpen helped Minnesota to shut out the Cleveland in the series opener. The Twins win back-to-back games for the first time since May 3.

The long ball really hurt him, again, as he gave up three extra-base hits, including three home runs. This shouldn’t come as a great surprise, since opposing hitters are posting a .518 SLG against him this year, a career-worst. He gave up a double during the first inning, but he went on to retire the n
  10. Once again the Twins offense was quiet and Matt Shoemaker, who was one out away from a quality start, ended up allowing five runs on three homers. Oakland crushed Minnesota to take the series opener at Target Field and the Twins now have the worst record in baseball.

  11. Minnesota opened a three-game road series in Detroit, in a game with not one, but two rain delays. Struggling bats shook off their slumps and provided a late surge that helped the Twins snap a three-game losing streak. Shoemaker also delivered solid five scoreless innings and earned his second win as a Twin.

For the second consecutive time, Minnesota’s leadoff hitter smashed a homer to open the game. Kyle Garlick took Tigers’ starter Tarik Skubal deep on the fifth pitch he saw, to make it 1-0. Skubal bounced back and struck out the next three batters, but the damage had already be
  13. Big Mike and the bullpen had a solid night, while Alex Kirilloff had the first huge game of his young career, homering twice and batting in four runs, to help the Twins win back-to-back games for the first time in over three weeks.Box Score Pineda: 5.0 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 2 BB, 5 K Home Runs: Kirilloff 2 (2) Top 3 WPA: Pineda .185, Kirilloff .157, Arraez .058 Win Probability Chart (via FanGraphs): Download attachment: chart.png Reaching base has been one of the greatest struggles for the Twins this season.

Before the game, only seven AL teams had a lower team on-base percentage than Minnesota (.304). Also, the team’s walk rate (7.5%) ranked sixth-worst in the majors. However, the lineup looked like a completely different one during the first couple of innings. Six different Twins reached safely in the first two innings, including three walks. They
  15. J.A. Happ carried a no-hitter into the eighth inning Friday night and both Willians Astudillo and Jake Cave hit home runs. Who saw that coming!?
