I’m reasonably sure about this.

Men in one color of pajamas scored more arbitrarily-awarded points than men in other-colored pajamas.

Have you ever tried to describe baseball to an immigrant? It’s impossible. “So the guy on third can run home, except sometimes he can’t, and only after the ball is caught, and only if there’s less than two outs,” The vast majority of immigrants are from countries where soccer is king, and soccer makes perfect sense — ball goes in goal, that’s it. Baseball is completely wackadoodle, that’s why we love it, but anybody from a sane country goes “I have no idea why you people enjoy this stuff.”

Twins starter Martín Pérez continued to be snakebit, as he does. Miguel Sano had four strikeouts and the tying homer, as he does. Waddya else want? I just follow this s**t, I can’t explain it. It’s a strange season and there’s no point pretending this thing is normal.

Super-duper Astudillo committed an error that let KC score, and ran bases terrifically to make MIN score. Such is as it is. The bullpen didn’t blow it, which is amazing! Go figure. RobotRollCall:
