Minnesota Twins: Grounded by Mother Nature, Astros
It was an unfortunate series for the Minnesota Twins who probably couldn’t help but leave thinking, “what if?”
Mother Nature was brutal to the Minnesota Twins who saw 5-0 lead off the 2015 American League Cy Young winner Dallas Kuechel disappear due to – if you ask me – absurd rule.
That means Brian Dozier‘s 24th home run and Ervin Santana‘s hot start meant nothing.
But odd rules aside, the Houston Astros ended up showing why they are still in postseason contention in a big way, scoring a combined 32 runs in the final three games played.
MVT: Tyler Duffey
Next up for the Minnesota Twins will be a three-game series with the Kansas City Royals at Target Field.
Next: Kintzler or Perkins in 2017?
The defending World Series champs are in third place currently and just 9.5 games ahead of the Twins.
Kyle Gibson (4-6, 4.86) will go for the Minnesota Twins against Yordano Ventura (7-9, 4.64).
