The Twins lost yet again to the Yankees today, making it now 19 losses in their last 22 games at Yankee Stadium. The 5-1 defeat also gave the Twins their fourth straight loss overall, dropping them 2.5 games back of the White Sox. During the game, the Twins showed their frustrations, via minnesotatwins.com:
Carlos Gomez snapped a bat over his leg after recording an out in the third inning. Nick Punto threw his helmet across the field after grounding into a double play in the fifth. And starter Glen Perkins verbally lashed out at Alexi Casilla after the second baseman forgot how many outs there were in the fifth inning -- a blunder that sent Minnesota into a tailspin.
The Twins are typically one of the more composed teams in the league. Maybe the Twinkies are starting to realize that they're not that good. Or maybe it was just because it's hot as balls in NYC. Either way, it was fun to watch.
