Kepler’s Twins Collect Clap – Judge Continues Record Hunt
The Minnesota Twins also lose their third duel against the New York Yankees.In the third inning, the calamity breaks through Max Kepler’s team
The Minnesota Twins have suffered the next setback in the race for the Major League Baseball playoffs.
In their third clash with the New York Yankees, the German Max Kepler team lost 3:11 in the “Big Apple”.For the Twins, it was their fifth defeat in the last six games, the third in a row against the Yankees.
The importance of the game for both teams was already apparent before the start of the match.The Yankees preferred the start of their star pitcher Luis Severino by two days.This means that Severino can play three more games in the regular season, which from Yankee’s point of view should increase their chances of passing the Boston Red Sox in the American League East.
However, Severino was unable to meet the high expectations.In the third inning, the twins used some of the 23-year-old’s weaknesses to make three runs.For the pitcher from the Dominican Republic, the game was over afterwards.
But his teammates turned up from the middle of the third inning and swept across the twins.First Super-Rookie Aaron Judge scored with his 45th birthday.Homerun of the season twice, Gary Sanchez had a back-to-back homerun tracked as soon as possible.
In the fourth inning, the disaster finally broke out over the team from Minnesota.
The twins were so shocked by this that they couldn’t make a U-turn any more, they even took two more runs in the fifth inning.Afterwards, the pitchers, who were changing in both teams, did not allow for any opponent’s points.
Kepler had his best action in the fifth inning, when he caught wide blow from Judge spectacularly.
The Yankees have now won ten of their last twelve games.After beating their direct rivals, the Yankees are now six victories ahead of Minnesota (MLB’s standings) in the race for first-place wildcard finish in the American League.
