Streak Reaches 8 In a Row!
The Minnesota Twins have now won 8 in a row heading into a 4 game series with the Tampa Bay Rays. The 8 game streak consists of defeating the Baltimore Orioles (2 times), Kansas City Royals (3 times), and the Seattle Mariners (3 times). Since the All-Star break they are 12-4 and have put themselves at a season high 13 games above .500 at 59-46. The Minnesota Twins are playing great baseball and are in a tight race with the Chicago White Sox for the AL Central, trailing by .5 games. The rotation has been fantastic during the streak including Francisco Liriano's current 21 scoreless inning streak. The Minnesota Twins are peaking at the right time and hope it can continue for the 10 game road trip.
