The Twins jumped all over the White Sox early and Lance Lynn put it on autopilot, going 6 innings for his first win of the season, and in his Minnesota career.
Lynn pitched like a man staked to a 8–1 lead in the fourth inning, giving up 8 hits but not issuing a single walk.
Most things broke right for Minnesota a season ago; the opposite hasn’t been the case this season, but it’s been closer to what one would expect. A few guys who enjoyed breakout seasons a year ago, aren’t this season.
Then there’s Miguel Sano, who has been out since mid-April with a hamstring strain. He was playing third base at over 290 pounds; there is little question as to how he get hurt so quickly.
Sano’s season last year versus this year is the number one reason why the Twins have declined and I don’t see that situation finishing well.
St. Louis Cardinals
Meanwhile, the Cardinals keep winning without drawing a whole lot of attention.
Adam Wainwright is quite ready to return from injury, though he is rehabbing. So John Gant will start in his place.
Gant has one of the least conventional windups in baseball. He lifts his left leg, as if he is going into the gather, before placing it down and continuing to twist his body into his actual gather.
He also uses the Vulcan changeup, which is gripped between the middle and ring finger and gets similar downward movement as a split-fingered fastball, but with a changeup’s velocity deception.
Gant made his only appearance of the season in the final week of April with three perfect innings of relief. He did make 9 starts between 2016 and 2017.
