Boxscore Breakdown #142: All the run support – Angels 14, Twins 4

A good old fashioned butt-whooping. That’s just what the Angels needed to inspire a little confidence in the offense. Also, they probably needed 14 runs just to be sure they had enough run support to actually win a C.J. Wilson start. Run Expectancy Rundown First off, that’s just way too many players in this game. I actually had to resize the chart just to fit everyone on. Howie...

Pitching staff suffers letdown in series finale loss to Angels

MINNEAPOLIS -- Through the first three games of their four-game series against the Angels, the last-place Twins were actually competitive against the team with the best record in baseball. It's hard to compete, though, when your pitching staff gives up 14 runs on 19 hits, which is exactly what Minnesota's pitchers did in the series finale Sunday. The end result was a lopsided...

Twins Thursday: Milone to skip start

MINNEAPOLIS -- Twins left-hander Tommy Milone is dealing with what manager Ron Gardenhire called a dead arm, so Minnesota will skip Milone's next turn through the rotation. Milone was scheduled to pitch Sunday in the series finale against the Los Angeles Angels, but the hope is giving him one start off will help his sore arm. Sunday's starter has not officially been announced...

The Weirdest No-Hitter Of All-Time

On Monday, the Twins’ Triple-A team — the Rochester Red Wings — completed a very strange no-hitter that spanned two different months, featured two different pitchers, and took place in two different states. Yup. While, the final out occurred on Monday in Rochester, the first out of the game actually took place on July 24th in Durham — the home of the Durham Bulls. Pitching...

Combined no-hitters are nothing new in baseball, but what the Rochester Red Wings did on Monday might be the strangest combined no-hitter ever.

Triple A team completes no-hitter 18 days and 700 miles later

Minnesota Twins trade rumors: Are the Twins done?

Ever since the All-Star Break, the Minnesota Twins have continued on their downward slide in the AL Central Division. As their chances of fighting to first place slowly slip away, I don’t think the Twins are quite finished in reeling and dealing with their players in the next few days before the trade deadline. Kendrys Morales About a month ago, I predicted that if the Twins were...

Chris Sale makes fast work of Twins

As if making his first major league start Saturday night at Target Field wasn't daunting enough, Twins left-hander Logan Darnell was pitted against fellow lefty Chris Sale. The results were about as mismatched as one might expect. The White Sox scored seven runs on 11 hits against Darnell while Sale threw eight scoreless innings in a 7-0 victory that marked his team's third...

Twins tapping cask of Kentucky collegiate talent

When Minnesota Twins left-hander Logan Darnell made his big league debut on Monday in Cleveland, Gary Henderson was watching -- on his cell phone. Thankfully for Henderson, the head baseball coach at the University of Kentucky, it's easier than ever to track his former players like Darnell. Though Darnell pitched in just one game out of the bullpen for Minnesota before he was...

Joe Mauer takes live BP for first time in six months

Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press has the story: Before he stepped into the box against Vance Worley and Logan Darnell on Saturday, Joe Mauer hadn’t faced professional pitching in just over six months. Let that sink in for a moment. Mauer didn’t do much swinging on this day, but afterwards he sounded pleased to cross off another milestone in his return...
