Twins @ Astros, May 31, 2024

Let’s start a win streak!

Jose Altuve (R) 2B
Kyle Tucker (L) RF
Yordan Alvarez (L) DH
Alex Bregman (R) 3B
Jake Meyers (R) CF
Jon Singleton (L) 1B
Mauricio Dubón (R) SS
Chas McCormick (R) LF
Yainer Diaz (R) C

Acting impetuously (IMHO), after only a couple of games, Joe couldn’t leave Bregman batting at 5/6, where he seems to have thrived. I hope Espada is right this time. Go Bregs!!

Acknowledged that Peña is not in the lineup tonite. No one else to stick in there really.

Blanco throws 9 pitches, all strikes, for a 1-2-3 first

No score.

Yordan with a 2-out single

Bregman grounds into FC. No score after one

After 15 straight strikes, Blanco issues a 1-out walk

Double play ball…Singleton drops the relay throw. E3

Buxton down on strikes. Twins get a walk and reach on an error, but still no score

Jake with a leadoff single

Dubon with an infield single, Myers to 2B

Two on, one out for Chas…

Chas strikes out on ball five

Up to Yainer…

Diaz grounds out 6-3 on the first pitch

No score

Castro with a leadoff stand-up triple

Infield in…

11-pitch walk to the nine hitter

Larnach down on strikes. Big out. Now let’s roll two and get out of this…
