“As sloppy as we’ve played in a long time”

…Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said. “Missing plays. I can’t remember the last time we’ve had a defensive ballgame as bad as that one. Base- running pretty bad, too.” -quoted by LEN3.

Game 60: Royals 9 (25-36), Twins 8 (35-25)

That was ugly. A very forgettable game that will gladly be overlooked if the Twins can continue their interleague dominance of the past few years.

Even worse, there is more DL news, this time J.J. Hardy. Not that it is surprising, but the Twins are now officially without the two free agent middle infielders that helped to create the non-Target Field buzz this offseason.
