Tigers 1, Twins 0: Upton bomb sinks Nolasco’s good start

This game was totally, super win-able, so of course the Twins pissed it away. Justin Upton hit his 200th career home run in the bottom of the second inning, which wound up being the only scoring in the game. And it was for the Tigers. Meaning, the Twins lost. Ricky Nolasco didn’t have a bad start, though. He lasted 6 innings and only gave up three hits! Just, unfortunately, one of those hits was a home run. So the Twins lost. I’m not even doing studs and duds because it’s too depressing. ROLL CALL! # Commenter # Comments 1 SooFoo Fan 24 2 sioux1337 10 3 James...

Tigers lineup: Mike Aviles, strong vs. Ricky Nolasco, starts in RF

Aviles typically only starts against left-handed pitchers, but he may have gotten the start against the right-handed Ricky Nolasco because of his .571 career average (8-for-14) against him. DETROIT -- Mike Aviles will start in right field Monday as the Detroit Tigers open a three-game series against the Minnesota Twins. Aviles typically only starts against left-handed pitchers, but he may have gotten the start against the right-handed Ricky Nolasco because of his .571 career average (8 for 14) against him.  Backup catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia is starting again...

Crisp, Graveman, Dull Lead A’s To 3-1 Win

If a hit falls in the 7th and there’s no one on AN around to write about it, does it make a sound? Apparently the answer is “yes” — it sounds like “COCO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” Continuing a resurgence that has Crisp partying like it’s 2013, the A’s veteran and leader broke a 1-1 tie with a bases loaded, two out single up the middle before running down the game’s final out with the tying runs on base. Ricky Nolasco blanked the A’s through 6 innings and Kendall Graveman was nearly as good, surrendering only a single run on a 4th inning fielder’s choice. Oakland knocked out...

Athletics 3, Twins 1: Hot Coco sinks Twins in the seventh

It wasn't a blowout, but it still didn't end well for the Twins. The Twins just couldn't really get anything going today, because apparently they hate America. Ricky Nolasco had an okay start, going 6 innings and giving up three earned runs on four hits and three walks. But yeah--that was not nearly enough. The Twins managed to load the bases in the bottom of the 4th inning for Max Kepler, who came to the plate and hit an RBI ground out for the Twins' only run of the game. At least they got a run? For America? Coco Crisp ended up hitting in the go-ahead run for the Athletics in the 7th...

The 19 Worst Things That Have Happened to the 2016 Minnesota Twins (So Far)

Avert your eyes, dear. You don't need to see this. The 2016 season is almost halfway over. If it seems longer, that's because everything has been terrible and nobody's happy.  A brief review: Phil Hughes needs to have a part of his body removed in order to pitch again. But at least he broke his knee, too. Glen Perkins' labrum tore completely off his bone, so he's done for awhile, too. Both of them got yelled at by local media for not pitching through pain, about which, yeah:  Ricky Nolasco is historically bad. Tommy Milone might be worse. The rest of the...

Nolasco: Thought I could salvage game

Twins righthander Ricky Nolasco says he thought he could prevent Chicago's lead from getting too big in sixth inning, "but it just didn't work out."

Twins, Nolasco crushed by White Sox to end three-game win streak

Ricky Nolasco gave up three homers in the loss.

Twins enjoy Sano's pain, hope to inflict a little on White Sox, too

Minnesota could string together its fourth three-game winning streak of the season, if Ricky Nolasco continues the stretch of good Twins pitching.
