It has been far from a perfect season for the Minnesota Twins, but it’s at least been entertaining.
Frustrating is another way to describe how things have gone.
After starting the year out on an absolute heater, things seem to have normalized for the Twins — or perhaps regressed back to the mean. The offense has been a specific source of angst for fans, as the lack of power has resulted in otherwise quality starts going to waste.
That’s a pretty big deal considering how annoying the pitching has been for the team over the last handful of years. Now that the rotation finally seems to have figured it out, the offense continues to false start and hold things back.
Thursday night’s series opener against the Cleveland Guardians was a classic example, although it shockingly ended up working out alright.
For the second time since being activated and called up, Royce Lewis managed to essentially win the Twins a game. It was a home run by Lewis that tied the game and allowed the Twins to catch a second wind.
Willi Castro ultimately played the hero role in extra innings, batting in Ryan Jeffers to give the Twins a 7-6 win over Cleveland. Without Lewis, it’s hard to imagine Minnesota winning the game, and that’s been a theme thus far since he’s joined the team.
