Minnesota Twins: Another Second-Half Series Win!
Well, how wrong was I about the Minnesota Twins and Miguel Sano.
In a previous article I, apparently controversially, suggested the Minnesota Twins should send Sano packing to the minor leagues as he was in the midst of a huge slump to go along with some terrible defense.
Apparently I spoke too soon.
All Sano did in helping the Twins topple the Tampa Bay Rays in a three-game series was homer three times during the series and show off that power that made him such an electric player last season.

The Minnesota Twins showed off their offense once again scoring 15 runs while homering four times.
During the first game it was Eddie Rosario who came through with a clutch, pinch-hit two-run homer that put the Twins up for good.
Sano hit his first blast of the series to help pad the lead.
In the second game of the series, Chris Archer picked up his sixth win of the season and looked much better than his 15-loss record would suggest.
Archer allowed one run over six innings while striking out seven.
The Twins fought back with another impressive victory on Sunday.
Kyle Gibson went five innings allowing just two runs but walking four and striking out only two.

Next up for the Minnesota Twins will be a four-game series with the Houston Astros at Target Field.
