Blue Jays 7, Twins 4: Let’s never play Toronto again

Blue Jays 7, Twins 4: Let’s never play Toronto again

Please The Blue Jays came to Minnesota as one of the worst hitting teams in baseball. Well, apparently the panacea to all offensive problems is Twins pitching.

The Twinkies would respond in the bottom of said inning when Eddie Rosario dinged a dong of his own to lead off. C.J Cron struck out, but then Marwin Gonzalez Marwalked. Willians Astudillo sent him to third with a swing that looked like a man tripping down a...

And on Wednesday night, the Twins ensured that a sweep wouldn’t be an option. After a pair of hard-luck losses — a two-run, bullpen-blown game on Monday and a comeback thwarted not once but twice in a one-run loss on Tuesday — the Twins jumped out in front by a score of 2-1 in the first inning and held on for dear life while gradually growing their lead. One week after his control collapse in New York against the...
