Happy Fourth

On this Independence Day morning, the Twins, having won a 12-inning affair in Oakland on Wednesday night:

  • are 54-31, a .635 winning percentage, which translates to 102 wins over the course of the season
  • still have not lost three games in a row
  • lead Cleveland by seven games in the AL Central
  • have the second-best run differential in MLB and the best in the American League.

They feel like they've been in a malase since Memorial Day, and the Yankees have overtaken them for best record in the AL, but that's still a pretty solid position to be in on July 4.


Jake Odorizzi went on the disabled list with a blister after his awkward start on Tuesday, with Zack Littell coming back up. This also takes Odorizzi out of the All-Star Game, but he was scheduled to start Sunday anyway, so he was going to be sidelined for the big exhibition regardless. Jose Berrios was named to the roster.

So the Twins have three All-Stars. Happy now?


And he had two key hits Wednesday too.
