Aaron Thompson and Ryan Pressley would close out the final two innings with two perfect frames to secure the win. The save was Pressley’s fourth of the season.
Great, thorough report Steve, on a very busy day. Just one minor quibble:
I know its only two games but looks like colabello is getting his stroke back. Does anybody know if he made an adjustment? Also nice to see Rosario off to a hot start. Nobody blocking him at AAA, how long does he stay at AA if he keeps killin it?
Thank you for this column. The other day when Andrew (Twins Fan From Afar) had a post on Mauer's stats with RISP, I asked about the discrepancy between the stats he cited and observation -- why I (and others) don't feel much confidence when Mauer comes up in high leverage situations (especially in later innings).
You've helped to give some definition to those gut feelings/observations.
I'm not a boo bird but I hope my confidence in Mauer grows as the season goes on.
