As most of the season has gone, the Minnesota Twins found themselves in an early hole, fought back to take the lead and then found themselves in yet another close race after allowing their opponent to get back into the game.
Yes, this seems to be the recipe for most of the Minnesota Twins’ season but on Tuesday, it just so happened to be against the Philadelphia Phillies who have ran into equally turbulent times.
In the end though it was the Vikings beating the Eagles…excuse me, the Twins (22-48) beating the Phillies (30-42) by a football-esque score of 14-10.
After starter Tyler Duffey allowed the Phillies to score an early run, the Twins rebounded with four runs in their portion of the first with the exclamation point coming off a two-run triple by Trevor Plouffe.
The Minnesota Twins will host Game Two of the interleague home stand against the Philadelphia Phillies and will send Kyle Gibson (0-5, 6.06) to the mound. Philadelphia will counter with Adam Morgan (1-6, 6.49). First pitch is set for 7:10 P.M. CST at Target Field.
And if the ERA’s between the two starters is any indication, Game Two may also be a very fun, offense-heavy game to watch.
