All-over-the-place pitching finally catches up with Cleveland starter Triston McKenzie, and gets exacerbated by one key umping brainfart in a nine-run Twins inning Josh Donaldson T-Shirt. Randy Dobnak returns to civilization from St. Paul and throws six scoreless frames, which is longer than most Twins starters have been averaging lately. Inning-by-inning notes:1: Luis Arraez has more walks than strikeouts so far this season. Is that allowed in 2021 Manfred should change the rules to adjust. Maybe count any take pitch that close to the plate as half a strike; give players bonuses for super-bomba foul balls. It doesn matter anyway, as Arraez pops up a 3-1 pitch from the walkingest pitcher in the AL. Our Mrmumph observes: nteresting hitting strategy against a guy who has control issues hopefully it caught them off guard. These notes are interrupted by a completely annoying medical device that completely stinks and completely sends both me and Mrs. James into a moment of wanting to destroy the device before we burn the house down just to escape its infernal beeping. Is there baseball going on Maybe Il pretend the beeps are coming from the radio, a new part of the broadcast. Albeit a stupid part that causes tears and strains marriages Tom Brunansky Hoodie, like Hawk Harrelson. 3: New Twins hero Rob Refsnyder hits a dong! That good, because the other Twins have decided that neither working counts nor getting hits are appealing options. Randy Dobnak gets Eddie Rosario to ground out on a sinker after throwing two other sinkers. Is this magic sinker Dobstache way back to Awesomeness, or is Cleveland kind of a crummy offensive team Well, they ARE a crummy offensive team, but both things could be true! Twins 1-04: Maybe I was hard on the Twins before for not working counts; maybe they needed to see what young Triston McKenzie was throwing first. Maybe the Magic Leprechaun of Walks showed up with a little pipe and a cheesy fake-Irish accent (fake because you can understand real Irish people without subtitles) and went aith and begorra, laddies, this boy be wilder than the selkies at high tide. hatever it was, the Twins walk thrice and touch home triply off McKenzie, who is replaced by Phil Maton, who ALMOST gets out of the bases-loaded Pickle with only one further run scored, but a crappy ball call that should have been Strike Three, Out Three on Josh Donaldson keeps things alive for walk, double, single, double, and no more Maton. After that loooong inning, radio says Dobnak is isibly frustrated by tight umping in the bottom half. Sorry, Dobbers, you don get to complain about that after the other team got Boned By Ump to the tune of four not-deserved runs! He gets over his upsetness, and the Spiders don get any baseball points. I almost feel less guilty about letting that beeping device make me a crabby jerk and Mrs. James cry https://www.minnesotagearshop.com/Nelson_Cruz_Pillow_Cover-321. But not really, it was still bad. Twins 10-0, you read this correctly5: Aforementioned hero Refsnyder strikes out; trade him now. Radio advertises a dog-friendly bar in Minneapolis which I will not encourage by mentioning here. You know what happens when you set poured beers in front of dogs They drink them. This is either animal cruelty or a waste of good beer.
