The Twins split the double header with the Royals, winning the second game.

MLB: Game Two-Minnesota Twins at Kansas City Royals
FELIX!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Steven Branscombe-USA TODAY Sports

The Royals scored two runs in the bottom of the second inning, and it looked like this would be yet another loss for the Twins—but alas, there is a god!

Twins starter Felix Jorge—who was making his major league debut—got the win.

And yeah, Twins may have coughed up game one of this double header, but they held it together for game two. A lot of that was thanks to Miguel Sano, who hit yet ANOTHER home run (he hit one in game one, too), and this time it was a three-runner. Have I ever told you all how much I love Sano? I love him.

I love Miguel Sano so much.

Tonight’s game was also significant because it was the major league debut for Twins starting pitcher Felix Jorge. The 23-year-old actually did pretty well, lasting five innings and giving up only two runs on six hits and a walks. I mean, I was screaming at my TV when Paul Molitor walked out there and took him out of the game (he only had 85 pitches!)

But the bullpen actually held on—and added three more runs at the end. I mean. I don’t know. This is awesome.

Eddie Rosario: 5-FOR-5, 3 runs scored, and one RBI.
