Game 47- Twins 8, Royals 3 (17-30)
No sweep after all.
Gobble's been occassionally good this year, but the complete inability to post a strikeout or two puts alot of pressure on his game. Yesterday was an episode of Bad Gobble, witha moribund Twins offense producing 6 runs. In the next 5.1 innings, the pen only allowed two more runs, which again, has been this team's pattern.

This is a good bullpen, I don't care what anyone says. Sullivan- 5 Ks in 2.1 innings... Wonderful.

Something needs to be said about Beltran, who's now down in the 260 range, and who was involved in two questionable baserunning plays yesterday.

Finally, the Royal's plate discipline has completely fallen off, and part of their inability to consistently post big innings is that they've got too many guys who make outs.
