  • Late rally for naught after bullpen falters
    It was an unlikely comeback, followed by an apparent dramatic game-winner, then a ninth-inning collapse. Ultimately, it was a 10th-inning defeat -- by an inch. The Twins experienced all of that during Friday night's emotionally draining 8-7 loss against the Rays at Tropicana Field.
  • Rosario socks 3rd career grand slam
    Twins left fielder Eddie Rosario said he was sitting on a slider. He guessed correctly and it produced one of the biggest hits of his career. Rosario collected a two-out, two-strike, game-tying grand slam off Rays reliever Sergio Romo. However, it eventually became a footnote in the Rays' 8-7 victory in 10 innings at Tropicana Field.
  • Dozier's hitting streak at 14 to start season
    Twins second baseman Brian Dozier has hit safely in all 14 of the Twins' games this year (and 21 games overall, dating to the close of last season). He extended the streak with a sharp sixth-inning single to left field against the Rays on Friday night at Tropicana Field, finishing 2-for-5 on the night.
  • LoMo hits 1st Twins HR in return to The Trop
    Designated hitter Logan Morrison was Friday night's homecoming king, picking a perfect spot to hit his first home run for the Twins.

  • Gibson looks for second win of 2018

The Twins take on a Rays team that will have Blake Snell on the mound tonight at 5:10 p.m. CT.
  • Weather has been Twins' biggest hurdle
    Given the frigid, uncertain and start-and-stop nature of the Twins' early season schedule, the team was especially grateful for one aspect of Friday night's game against the Rays. The roof at Tropicana Field.
