Fast Reaction: Twins 5, Rangers 0

Hannah Foslien

Twins split the series with the Texas Rangers.

On Thursday evening, the Twins nearly came back on the Rangers when their outfield shift didn't work and Brian Dozier slapped one into the right field corner. Today, they tried to shift the infield on Justin Morneau. Who promptly deposited the ball in the right field seats.

Kevin Corriea was the best he's been all season. Eight strong innings, six hits, zero runs. Anytime you blank the Rangers, you've done something right. April or not, Correia was like a Rubik's Cube. Texas sure as hell understood what they were supposed to do with it, but that didn't mean they could. One more time this season, Correia defies the odds. A fantastic start from our maligned free agent.

Bullet Point Highlights
  • Aaron Hicks picked up another hit today, but he also nailed Mitch Moreland at second base trying to turn a single into a double.
  • Joe Mauer was 0-for-4 today, and is in the middle of a rough patch. His average is down to simply a "very good" .302.
  • Jamey Carroll went 2-for-3 today, although he did get thrown out trying to go first-to-third on Leonys Martin.
  • Gardy was ejected for the 63rd time today when Alfonso Marquez tossed him for coming out to argue a call at third base. Oswaldo Arcia was moving up on an Eduardo Escobar bunt, and Gardy clearly thought Arcia beat the throw over.
