At least we play KC soon so maybe the Twins can rebound a bit.
What a couple nights for my boys, THREE complete game shut-outs in a row
as the Twins destroyed KC, outscoring them 25-0 over the past three games.
Radke threw a 4-hitter, then Santana a 3-hitter, then Lohse with a six-hitter last night. That's 27 scoreless innings by starters, along with 24 strikeouts and only 2 walks. KC managed to get 13 hits scattered across those 27 innings, all of them singles.
Things are getting pretty bad in KC. Since tradong Beltran, they are 1-12 and they have scored just one run in the last 37 innings of baseball. KC's big boon last year was their divisional record, but this year that's flopping. After going 11-8 against Minny last year, this year, they are 3-9 so far. Not looking good for them....
But, things are looking better for the Twins. After the Sweep of KC, and combined with the Chi-Sox 5-game losing streak, my boys are back in First Place with a 2.5 game lead and a fully rested bull-pen... here's to hoping that they continue the run by pounding on Detroit!
