GOOD WIN, BAD HOMESTAND
Coming off a 5-2 road trip and the buzz of the All-Star break, the Twins said they wanted to make a run coming out during their 10-game homestand that followed. It didn’t work out that way, not after going 3-7 and starting the process of breaking apart the team.
At the break 10 home games later
Record 44-50 47-57
AL Central deficit 10½ 11½
Wild-card deficit 6½ 8
