July's Twins troubles start with the starters

  • Updated: July 6, 2014 - 10:05 PM

Twins starting pitchers were awful in April, much better in May and mediocre in June. So far in July, a small sample size of just six games, they are back to their terrible April form. In six starts this month, Twins pitchers have allowed 22 earned runs in just 28 1/3 innings for an ERA of 6.99. Kyle Gibson on Friday and Ricky Nolasco on Sunday lasted just two innings apiece, putting the Twins in massive holes and dooming them to comebacks that fell just short. For all the investment in starting pitching, the rotation’s combined ERA for the season is an AL-worst 5.01.

NOT A FAN Experts polled by ESPN.com ranked Matt Cassel as the No. 28 starting quarterback among the 32 teams in the NFL.

 

CAN’T DO THAT Dom Dwyer of Major League Soccer’s Sporting KC got a yellow card for taking an in-game selfie photo after a goal.
