The Twins went 16 innings to get a hard-fought split of their two games against the Indians in Puerto Rico. They will get Thursday off to travel and get settled into Florida for a weekend series with Tampa Bay.
That isn’t a long flight from Puerto Rico to Tampa, though, so the Twins should be rested up after the marathon on Wednesday. Lance Lynn gets the start in this one.
Lynn has only made it through nine innings in two starts but his start lasted five innings and he didn’t give up anything. He struck out nine but walked another four after throwing ball four six times in his Minnesota debut.
So far, the Twins are keeping pace with the Indians. They aren’t quite as good as Cleveland is, but this is a playoff team because I don’t see Los Angeles sustaining its pace out West.
Tampa Bay Rays
The Rays, meanwhile, look pretty terrible, though they did take two of three from Texas, which also looks pretty terrible, this week.
Chris Archer starts the opener of this weekend’s series. He got an ugly set of numbers four starts into his season: 1–1 with a 7.84 ERA and a WHIP closer to two than one.
He’s walked at least two in his last three starts and three in two of them. He’s also given up at least six hits in all four of his outings, none of which have gone into the seventh inning.
Tampa’s offense isn’t doing its pitching staff any favors, either. Ten home runs through 18 games is representative of where this lineup is. And it’s not like there is anything it does exceptionally well to make up for the power outage.
