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 14...

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, but...

Twins’ Triple-A Team Tosses Strange No-Hitter In Two Different States

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. The no-no that the Minnesota Twins Triple-A affiliate accomplished against the Durham Bulls took 18 days to complete, and took place in two different states by two different pitchers, one of whom is currently in the Major Leagues. So, how...

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

A game started more than two weeks ago and 700 miles away turned into one of the oddest no-hitters in professional baseball on Monday in Rochester, N.Y. Logan Darnell threw six no-hit innings as the host Rochester Red Wings defeated the Durham Bulls 3-0 in the completion of an International League game that had been suspended last month. The game began July 24 in Durham, N.C., with...

Sox Return Home to Take on Struggling Twins

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...

Twins rookie Darnell taken to school by Sale, White Sox

MINNEAPOLIS -- Logan Darnell didn't have a choice of which opposing pitcher took the mound Saturday, Darnell's first career big-league start. Unfortunately for the Twins left-hander, his counterpart was White Sox All-Star Chris Sale. On a night when Sale pitched one of his best games of the year, Darnell did not. Minnesota's rookie allowed seven runs on 11 hits in five-plus innings...

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 sent...

Twins put Hicks on DL, recall LHP Darnell

MINNEAPOLIS -- The Minnesota Twins have had a bad stretch of luck when it comes to concussions. Outfielder Aaron Hicks is the latest example. Hicks was placed on the 7-day concussion disabled list Friday with concussion-like symptoms. He was injured Thursday night against the Los Angeles Dodgers when he slammed into the wall in center field while trying to make a catch. Hicks eventually...
