    Yes. Very dominant performance by Lopez. Now it's Gray's turn to shut down the Astros in Game 3.

    And the Twins stop the 16-game ALDS losing streak!

      And a 9 playoff game losing streak on the road, I believe.

      • Gray at home in the cold* versus a weaker Houston pitcher. Gotta get it done Tuesday.

              Jealous. As a newly promoted nurse, my increased responsibilities come complete with my own office, which I’ll most definitely be using on Tuesday, with the door shut, to watch the game.

                My guess is that it would be shutout innings, not just innings. The Twins had three complete games in the '65 World Series alone.
                That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

                  I didn’t take the time to look it up, but I figured there mist have been another qualifier somewhere. With guys like Blyleven, Kaat, and Grant in your history it just couldn’t be true.

                    I'm sure this is something repeated often enough until the last 30 years or so, but all 7 games of the 1965 World Series featured the winner pitching a complete game. Along with the Twins Grant and Kaat throwing three, Osteen and Drysdale threw complete game wins for LA in games 3 and 4, and Koufax threw CG shutouts in games 5 and 7. His line over the two games: 18 7 0 0 4 20.

                    In 4 World Series (1959, '63, '65, '66) Koufax threw 57 innings over 8 games, gave up 36 hits and 11 walks (WHIP .825) and pitched to an ERA of 0.95. That's pretty good I guess, maybe a little better than Kershaw.

                    • btw had the Twins won Game 7 of the '65 WS, assuming '87 and '91 didn't change they would have 3 WS titles in which the home team won every game of the series.

                      • Johan Santana throwing to joe Mauer for first pitch tmrw. Gaetti to gladden Wednesday

                        man am I pumped- able to go to both games for total of $200. Won’t be able to afford any subsequent series that may follow

                          • Welp, that started about as poorly as possible. Twins need to respond quick.

                                Yep. Absolutely terrible start. "Cold" weather games are notoriously low scoring. A 4 run deficit feels like 10. Yuck...
