If you're wondering how the Twins have a winning record with a negative run differential (minus-48 entering Wednesday's game), there's this: They are 11-17 in games decided by five or more runs and 9-4 in one-run games.
If you're tired of the Twins seemingly being the only local team on TV lately, rejoice and watch some soccer: Minnesota United plays at New York City FC on Thursday (6:30, Ch. 29).
"I know there are some things the Twins will have to live with, but Miguel Sano is on pace to strike out well over 200 times and he could shatter Mark Reynolds' Major League record 223 set in 2009. Byron Buxton could strike out around 175 times."
