MSF Daily – 8/7/17

Twins WIN today to halve series with Rangers:

The Twins participated in an interesting game today with the Rangers. The first inning was hard to watch. If you made it through, you would have seen Jose Berrios struggle, giving up 5 runs in the 1st alone.

Then, in the bottom half of the 2nd, it started raining hard enough to stop the game in a the middle of a Jason Castro at-bat. Apparently that is exactly what Berrios needed. He buckled down after that and held the powerful Rangers’ hitters to 0 runs through the next 4 innings.

The Twins were able to start the comeback, after the retched 1st half-inning by Berrios, with a Max Kepler BOMB to right field in the 2nd. Then, after the rain break… but in the same inning, Dozier hit a 2-run shot to left field to make it a 1-run game. The 3rd HR for the Twins came from Rosario, to tie the game in the 3rd. By the 4th inning, the Twins had the lead when Grossman scored Escobar with a double off the right field wall.

That’s how the Twins would win. 6-5 after the bullpen was able to hold up for 4 entire innings. Matt Belisle was handed the closer role, for today anyway, after the Kintzler trade at the break.
