Big lead nearly vanishes for Twins, then becomes bigger lead in huge win over Tigers

It’s not often that a 20-6 victory can be said to have been decided by one play, but the Twins might have managed it Friday night. After taking a 6-1 lead, they were ahead by only a single run in the sixth inning, and Detroit had all the momentum. An intentional walk to Miguel Cabrera put runners on first and third with one out, when Brian Dozier made what might have been a game...

Amarista, Smith save Padres' win over Twins

As a rule, Bud Black doesn’t doubt his players. Yet off the bat, the Padres’ upbeat skipper wasn’t sure what sort of chance Alexi Amarista would have at catching Eduardo Escobar’s two-strike drive with the winning run standing on second base in the last of the ninth inning Wednesday afternoon. Positioning sure wasn’t on the diminutive utilityman’s side. “Off the bat...

Royals Come Back, Win 6-3

After standing pat at the trade deadline, Royals fans spent the latter half of today in a bit of a foul mood. A team with a lot of holes, and admittedly so, made absolutely no attempts to make this team better, but still has high hopes of making the playoffs. Sounds crazy, right? That’s because it is. Tonight didn’t get off to a dazzling start, but it finished as one for Yordano...

Joe Mauer's injury dampens mood after Twins smash Royals

Even when the Twins win, they still can’t win. It was star first baseman Joe Mauer’s fourth-inning, bases-loaded double that sparked the Twins’ biggest lead in recent memory. But while the crowd cheered Eduardo Escobar and Sam Fuld home, Mauer pulled up in pain at second base. Mauer’s injury marred an otherwise impressive 10-2 Twins’ victory over the error-prone Kansas...
