Twins Stifle Tigers, 11-4

Tigers fail as Twins balls sail RHYMES Rick Porcello had a chance to push Detroit to the precipice of an AL Central title.  Instead, he got shelled. By the Twins. And with the Royals beating the Whities, the Tigers lead is down to one game with two to go, as they got curbstomped by Minnesota 11-4. The Twins pounced on Porcello immediately, plating three runs in the first on Danny Santana double, Brian Dozier single, and a majestic Oswaldo Arcia dong.  And the Twins kept their boot on Detroit's neck, extending the lead to 6-0 on a Dozier solo dong and a 2-run throwing error by Nick...

Minnesota Takes A Little Extra Time to Spoil Cleveland's Night

Minnesota Takes A Little Extra Time to Spoil Cleveland's Night

EXTRA INNINGS OH BOY The Twins, coming off a little spoiling with the Tigers, continued to ruin fun for other Rust Belt cities with a 5-4, 10-inning win over Cleveland on Friday at Target Field. Oswaldo Arcia opened the scoring with a majestic solo dong in the bottom of the 3rd.  It was Ozzie's 19th dong of the season. Cleveland immediately countered in the top of the fourth, plating two runs off Twins starter Phil Hughes.  The Twins power youth movement (can we make Power Youth a thing?) evened the score in the bottom half, with Kennys Vargas contributing his own solo dong. But the wild...

Twins | Oswaldo Arcia out with back issue

Minnesota Twins OF Oswaldo Arcia (back) is out of the lineup with back stiffness Tuesday, ...

Monday (The re-emergence of Oswaldo Arcia) edition: Wha' Happened?

In another going-nowhere season for the Twins, the best fans can hope for are signs that certain players could be considered parts of the future. We found that out last year with Brian Dozier, who has leveled off this season after a powerful start but still projects to hit for above-average power while playing a very good second base for years to come. This year, we’ve seen flashes of it from Kyle Gibson. We’ve seen a very good first 350 ABs for Danny Santana and a very nice first impression from Kennys Vargas. The player we thought was primed for a breakout, though, was Oswaldo Arcia....

Twins 4, Indians 3: Oswaldo Arcia went boom

After it looked like this game was going to suck, it suddenly didn't suck. It looked like it was going to be another terrible, un-watchable night for us Twins fans. Jordon Schafer, batting first in place of the injured Danny Santana, drew a walk to lead-off the game, but was promptly picked off trying to steal second. Indians starter Trevor Bauer retried Brian Dozier and Joe Mauer to end the inning having thrown only 15 pitches. The second inning was even worse. Bauer again retired the Twins in-order on only 15 pitches. In the bottom of the second, Trevor May gave up a lead-off single to...
