Postgame Twinsights: Ricky Nolasco vows to come back "hungry" in 2015

Ricky Nolasco made his 13th and final home start of 2014 on Monday night. After getting blasted in a five-run fifth, the Twins’ Opening Day starter finished his Target Field debut season at 3-6 with a 4.46 earned run average. A smattering of boos was heard as Nolasco was lifted. “It’s been a terrible year,” Nolasco said. “I have high expectations of myself. There’s nothing really I could have done (in September). All I can do is try to stay healthy and avoid major injury and rebound next year. Some rest will be good for me. I’ll be ready to [...] The post Postgame Twinsights:...

Twins 3, Tigers 2: Twins win absurd ninth-inning walk-off

After a great game by Ricky Nolasco, Glen Perkins blew up in the ninth. Luckily, a certain former Twins closer did too. Ricky Nolasco pitched a great game tonight, giving up only five hits over eight shut-out innings. On the back of Kennys Vargas, who was only a double short of the cycle, Nolasco looked like he was in line for the win--but this game just had to get a little more exciting than that. After slumping recently, Kennys Vargas came back tonight and provided most of the offensive power for the Twins. With the score still 0-0, Kennys led off the 4th inning with a mega Kennys Vargas...

Postgame Twinsights: The Baltimore bunt that set up biggest blast

BALTIMORE -- Lost in a 33-hit afternoon was a bunt single for Baltimore's David Lough that should have given Ricky Nolasco a much-needed out in the sixth. Lough, who also sacrificed in the first, popped up his bunt this time along the third-base line. It was left to catcher Eric Fryer to race out from behind the plate and try to throw out Lough, which he couldn't. Adam Jones followed with a two-run double on an 0-2 pitch when Nolasco might have been able to work him more carefully with a base open, even though Nelson Cruz was due up next.

Postgame Twinsights: Ailing Ricky Nolasco toughs it out

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Here, at long last, was the pitcher the Twins thought they were signing last winter when they gave Ricky Nolasco a minimum of $49 million over four seasons. Not only did Nolasco spin seven shutout innings in what became a tough-to-swallow 2-1 loss to Kansas City. He also fought through a nasty flu bug on a night when the heat index at first pitch was 97 degrees. "He was fighting through the first three innings," Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said. "He said he felt miserable and was ready to call it a night. Then he started [...] The post Postgame Twinsights: Ailing Ricky...

Royals 2, Twins 1: Nolasco actually throws a great game, Perkins blows it

Oh what the H-E-double hockey sticks. After looking awful in his last couple starts, Ricky Nolasco turned it around tonight and had his best start ever as a Twin. Nolasco gave up only three hits over seven scoreless innings and looked to be in line for his first win since June 4th. Unfortunately, Glen Perkins COMPLETELY BLEW IT and the Twins lost instead. The first six innings or tonight's game moved pretty swiftly, thanks to Nolasco's and Royals starter Danny Duffy's strong outings. Scoring didn't get started until the top of the seventh. Brian Dozier led off the inning with a double, and...
