    That's doesn't excuse Perkins. Yes, those last two runs are "unearned," but Perkins can't blame anybody for them but himself.

    Blame Dozier...but that was an 0-2 pitch from Perkins that Young just doubled on to tie the game. Completely unacceptable.

    Dozier should have been the first out, Carroll struck out for out number 2 and Span flew out. No runs should have scored.

    ESPN has them both as unearned FWIW
    I just checked the rulebook. You are correct. My bad.

    Unbelievable. Texas took out Nathan with good reason, then the Twins leave Perkins in.

    Gardenhire seems determined to lose the game in the 9th then go home.

    true but you gotta bounce back and the wild pitch didn't help...but Perk has struggled most of the yr as the closer although his numbers dont show it he's battled

    Two solid hits, and two hits off pretty good pitches. That happens, but he shouldn't have had to get 4 outs, and the fact that Dozier's error was a two base error wasn't insignificant either.

    The real loser here is Cole DeVries. He deserved a W tonight, and the Twins couldn't hold it.

    So true. Hopefully he gets a lot of credit tonight in the locker room.

    I have been in favor of trading Capps, because he's a tradeable commodity, not because I want Perkins closing.

    It seems to me that Perkins has been asked to pitch a lot of inning lately. And I don't understand why Gardenhire left him in the game so long, especially with the All-Star break starting tomorrow.

    Gardy's always been like that - he lets the "closer" get the job done or blow it completely - no half-way measures. In all fairness, most managers do the same thing. Closers are supposed to be your most reliable people in those situations - they're supposed to be able to pitch their way out of trouble.

    Perk did pitch 4 days in a row, but he had 2 days off after that, and this was only his 2nd game in 5 days. He should have been rested.
