Twins 5, Tigers 4 (10 inn.): Kepler earns his robe, team sets sights on A.L. Central title

Maximum Kepler and GarvSauce. What a duo. | Photo by Hannah Foslien/ The universe is working in the team’s favor. A lot of scoreboard watching was in store for us Minnesota Twins fans during tonight’s game. A Twins win is always good, but pair it with a Chicago White Sox loss and a New York Yankees loss and it would be a good Tuesday evening in Twins Territory. The Detroit Tigers came in to Minneapolis and Homer Bailey was given the task of starting against the AL Central foes. This was Bailey’s first start since the first week of the regular season due to right bicep issues, but...

The Twins can’t handle the heat

The Twins can’t handle the heat

Photo by Ron Schwane/ A year after pacing the Majors against fastballs, struggles against heaters are the root of Minnesota’s offensive woes Through 55 games in 2020 the Twins have continued hitting bombs. They are on a pace that would equate to 250 homers over a normal 162 games – not the record pace of last year, but a figure that would easily rank as second most in franchise history. While the bombs are present, the overall offensive success has not been. At 4.45 runs scored per game, the Twins rank just 19th and have posted a .242 / .316 / .429 (BA / OBP / SLG) composite line...

Here's the thing: While home field advantage would mean a significant amount in that series — since the Twins are 21-5 at home and the Yankees are 21-7 at home while both have losing...
