Twins flail away at Tigers pitching in 4-2 loss

The Minnesota Twins are going down swinging. The Twins struck out another 14 times in a 4-2 loss to the Detroit Tigers on Tuesday night, the 61st time this season they have fanned at least 10 times in a game. Josh Willingham and Clete Thomas each struck out three times, and the Twins' final six outs of the game came on whiffs as they failed to keep the Tigers from clinching...

Heyward,Young & Thomas on the defense

courtesy photo Paul Sancya/AP I can’t let good defense go unnoticed as Heyward, Thomas & Young made some  tremendous catches on Monday night for their respective teams.  None of them are part of a law firm nor in contentions of getting a Gold Glove this year but all three made another night of Major League Baseball worth watching. Here is Atlanta Braves outfielder Jason Heyward...

My favorite part of Monday's make up game against the Twins was Gary Cohen going absolutely insane over an egregious bit of hometown scoring. Daniel Murphy clearly erred on a Clete Thomas grounder when he threw it to Oshkosh. But apparently the official scorer was Clete Thomas' mom because Clete was awarded a hit on the play. Cohen turned into Hawk Harrelson, forcing Keith...

A recap of last night

Last night, the Twins beat the Houston Astros in the 13th inning with a walk off single by Brian Dozier. Before that, Pitcher Kevin Correia bunted successfully, moving Clete Thomas to second. Before that, Ron Gardenhire was going to have another pitcher, Mike Pelfrey, bat, but Correia was a better bunter, while Pelfrey is a better hitter. Before that, yet another pitcher Ryan Pressley...

Dozier plays hero several times in Twins' extra-inning victory

Things got crazy in the Twins dugout around the 10th inning Friday as their struggling offense matched up with Houston’s. The Twins were running out of bench players so pitchers began putting their cleats on and reporting for extra duty. ‘‘Panic mode” second baseman Brian Dozier said. ‘‘Pitchers love that stuff. They think they can hit.” As it turned out they just...

Twins Wednesday: Minnesota done in on questionable call in loss

After tallying just two hits through eight innings, the Minnesota Twins seemed unlikely to do much against the Angels and starter Jered Weaver in Wednesday's 1-0 loss in the series finale. But after Weaver gave way to closer Ernesto Frieri in the ninth, Minnesota had new life when Frieri walked Clete Thomas and hit Doug Bernier to open the ninth. Just when it looked like the...

After blowing lead, Twins use seven-run 10th to beat Angels

It began as your normal Major League Baseball game. Kyle Gibson was in the middle of this rookie baptism. Tommy Hunter was coming off the disabled list. Then things stopped making sense. Like Twins closer Glen Perkins blowing a save and ending a run of 19⅓ scoreless innings. Like Angels closer Ernesto Frieri not just flopping, but flopping fantastically. Like Clete Thomas being...

Thomas, Perkins preserve Deduno's effort for Twins win

The Twins might be forced to accept life with Samuel Deduno the way it is. He’s going to have runners on the base paths. There are going to be one or two (or four) hard-hit balls. Pitching coach Rick Anderson will get his workout in taking trips to the mound to recalibrate the gifted righthander. But it seems that, more often than not, Deduno will figure out a way to finish with...
