Falling behind -- again

  • Updated: April 28, 2011 - 9:53 PM

 

Though the Twins were trounced by at least 10 runs for the third time this season in the 15-3 loss to Tampa Bay in Thursday's early game, even more troubling is the number of times they are falling behind. In 12 of 24 games this season, they have trailed by four or more runs. Why is a four-run deficit significant? The Twins are averaging only 3.2 runs per game. A look at the times they have trailed by at least four runs this season:
