New, 15 comments

Homers provide just enough, as does very good luck.

It seemed so familiar.

Ryan Jeffers socks a two-run homer: HUZZAH! TWINS IN THE LEAD! ...but it won’t last.

Whit Merrifield responds with a two-run single: well, poo.

Kyle Garlick solo shot: WINNING AGAIN! ...but they’ll give it back.

Andrew Beninendi’s reply is a two-run dinger: can’t say I didn’t see that one coming.

Miguel Sanó comes back with a two-run moonshot: WOWWWWWW! ...but the bullpen will undoubtedly blow it.

Hansel Robles surrenders a leadoff double in the ninth? here it comes.

The Twins get one out but Little League that runner over to third? ...yep, here it comes.

Michael A. Taylor hits a sharp line drive? ...and here it is.

That line drive goes directly to Andrelton Simmons, who tosses over for a game-ending double play?

...what am I supposed to feel now?

STUDS:

Ryan Jeffers, Kyle Garlick, Miguel Sanó: dingers all

Tyler Duffey, Taylor Rogers, Hansel Robles: combined 3.0 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K

The clock: 2:37 time of game!

DUDS:

are you serious?

NO DUDS TWINS WIN!
