Justin Verlander Just Kills the Twins
Poor Twins. The Twins had their best chance in the first inning when they had two runners on with one out. Verlander got out of the jam and looked to be in some trouble when he had already thrown 60 pitches through three innings Clearly, that wasn't the case. He buckled down and dominated the Twins lineup and they were toast from there. Manager Ron Gardenhire seemed to agree with my analysis.
"You saw us get dominated by Verlander over there," Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said. "He was pretty filthy."
Verlander has two wins in two starts against the Twins this season with a 1.15 ERA.
