Twins to lose first series in a month.
There are a few different ways to look at last night’s game. And I’m going to be brief, because the simple fact is that the Twins (who are a pretty good team in their own right) were beaten by a very good team while playing on their turf. These weren’t three consecutive blowouts, they’ve been three well-pitched games in which
Denard Span came up with a big RBI double, Danny Valencia picked up three more hits and Brian Duensing probably deserved better than he got, but in the end this is just what happens when you face good teams: they sometimes come out ahead.
Jesse Crain continues to blank opposing offenses, and Jon Rauch pitched a perfect seventh, but that’s pretty much all you can say about last night. Today the Twins have an opportunity to salvage one contest in this four-game midweek tilt, and hopefully timing is on our side and the White Sox can get beat again, too.
