Morning news and notes for Monday, May 16, 2022

Here’s to a week with more good than bad!

Twins 3, Guardians 1

Recap | Box Score

Sunday’s game featured two young starters with tons of potential and both pitched well. Our guy, Triston McKenzie, allowed just three hits over seven innings of work. Two of those hits were homers though. Their guy, Joe Ryan, was even better, giving up just one run. That likely won’t be those right-handers last AL Central...

One baseball in particular. I’m gonna find it. I’m gonna bring it back here and we’re gonna make it squeal, y’hear?

The offense went unsupported last week. Alas! The very same Cleveland Guardians dropped today’s game against the Twins by a final score of 3-1.

Triston McKenzie hurled seven innings and allowed three hits and two walks. He struck out four, but two-out home runs to Byron Buxton and Giovanny Urshela soured the afternoon. Enyel...

Guardians 8 - Twins 12

The Guardians are learning that you can come back from ten runs down or more only so often. It is not the next market inefficiency. The Guardians gave up 9 runs in the fifth and the Twins went into cruise control.

Let me off the Bryan Shaw Experience

I don’t like this ride mommy, I want to go home

Fifteen pitches, two home runs, five earned runs, no outs. That’s about all you need to know about Bryan Shaw’s night tonight. He came into the game at a tense moment and left the field with a burning tire fire behind him.

The loss isn’t all on Shaw, of course. He didn’t the other two runners to score in the fifth — or the two solo home runs in the first three at-bats in the game — but he came...
