  • Twins vs. Orioles, 07-19-2012, 12:10pm

    The Twins cannot deliver Francisco a win. Again last night, the left-hander pitched a solid six innings, giving up two earned runs and striking out 10 batters. The Twins offense couldn't muster more than one run in nine frames and dropped the game 2-1 to the Orioles.

    This afternoon, we get Cole De Vries and a getaway lineup against Wei-Yin Chen, making the 18th start of his debut season. Chen has been one of the few solid parts of the Orioles rotation, pitching over 100 innings with a 3.80 ERA for Baltimore. The Orioles look for a split today while the Twins look to take three out of four from the fading O's.

    What do you expect from De Vries? Will Gardenhire run out a lineup that can win this game? Join the Twins Daily discussion and let us know!

      Cool! Taking my nephew from Albuquerque (Big Isotopes fan : ) to the game. Not sure if the Target Field experience can compete with the Topes home turf.

      Hmmm... if you're going to start Doumit in the outfield, wouldn't you be better off putting him in right and moving Revere to left?

      Morneau is hopeless against a tailing breaking ball from a lefty.

      Morneau down to a .753 OPS...hot damn his contract can't end soon enough.

      "Watching" this one on GameDay. It doesn't look like Mr. De Vries is fooling many of the Oriole hitters--lots of long fly balls and one that the park couldn't hold.

      I'm watching the game. He's not fooling most hitters. A bad sign on the first trip through a lineup.

      That homerun was a moon shot.

      What are you talking about...he hasn't walked anyone. He's pitching great!!

      No outs, two runners on base, Casey At The Bat.

      I don't have a good feeling about this for some reason.

      Thome might hit the Target Center in this at-bat.

      Nice pitching adjustments Cole. That's great to see.

      That's his first ground out of the game.

      The top and bottom of the strike zone seem to be guesswork at best today.

      Nice catch by Dozier. That's a tough play.

      Uh... there's no way Dozier should have to make that catch, but since "ankle weights" Doumit is in left, he couldn't get there to call him off. Worked this time, but playing with fire with Doumit in the OF.

      Good at-bat for Casilla - kept himself in there and finally got the sacrifice.

      OK, here we go. Third time through the order. Here's where we see what DeVries is made of today.
