Not only did Carlos Correa return to the lineup a day after it looked like he might have broken his wrist on a pitch that hit him, but he came back firing on all cylinders. Correa batted second on Friday night and hit a home run that should have given the Minnesota Twins a one-run win.

Instead, a strange base-running mishap that went uncalled resulted in the Seattle Mariners tying the game in the eighth inning before winning on a walk-off in the 10th.

It was a frustrating way to begin a series in Seattle, with Griffin Jax uncharacteristically imploding to give up the lead while the Twins' offense quieted down from how loud it was in Arizona. Nobody who has watched the streakiest team in baseball should be surprised, and Minnesota will be back in action on Saturday to try and avenge what happened last night.

How to watch Minnesota Twins game tonight on TV and streaming?

Good thing it's a Saturday night, because Twins fans will once again need to stay up way past their bedtime to catch tonight's game. It's another super late start, as first pitch isn't scheduled until 9:10 pm CT, which is a result of having the game out west.

It's the third leg of a West Coast road trip for the Twins, so really we should all be used to this by now. Of course, some fans might be able to get some rest since the game will be on Bally Sports North which means only a small slice of Twins Territory will be able to watch.

  • Start Time: 9:10 pm CT
  • Date: Saturday, June 29, 2024
  • Location: Seattle, WA
  • Stadium: T-Mobile Park
  • Local TV Channel: Bally Sports North

For anyone outside of the viewing area, one of these streaming options could do the trick. Twins fans inside of the Minnesota area can view Bally Sports North as part of Fubo's channel lineup. 

Twins vs. Mariners starting pitchers, June 29th

It's Pablo Day -- or rather, night -- out in Seattle. Pablo Lopez (7-6, 5.11 ERA) will be on the mound to try and both get the Twins a win and keep getting his season back on track. It's been a rough year for Lopez who started the season as Minnesota's ace but has hardly lived up to the billing.

His starts have embodied Minnesota's streakiness this season. He's either been on the bump for a string of Twins' wins or losses, with the only single result being a loss to the Yankees earlier in June. The good news is that Pablo takes the mound riding a three-game streak in which the Twins have won games he's started, which either is a great sign for tonight or an omen that the pendulum will swing back the other way.

Pablo's last start was his best in almost a month, as he went eight full innings against the Athletics, striking out 14 hitters while not allowing a single run. Home runs have been a problem for Twins starters this year and Lopez has led the charge in the worst way. Getting through a start in which he didn't surrender a home run was huge, and it's something he'll hope to carry over into Satuday's game.

As for the Mariners, Bryce Miller (6-6, 3.90 ERA) is looking to follow up Logan Gilbert's great start on Friday night. Unlike Gilbert, this will be the first time that Miller is facing the Twins this year as his start didn't line up with Seattle's trip to Target Field back in May.
