MIN has 86 HRs in 51 games at home before tonight, 105 in 49 games on the road.

I thought that too, but actually Minnesota hits more HRs on the road and it's not so close. These two teams just crush the ball.
This series specifically, the ball is carrying and flying off the bat. That Gleyber homerun looked like a terrible swing turned into a routine popup and somehow it flew over the wall.

It almost looks like London, I wonder if the air is somehow messing up the pitchers' movement.

Heh, Judge's broken bat balls are hit harder than most people's line drives.

DJ first to third on a Judge dribbler up the middle.

This team hardly knows what squander means. The 4-run second inning was textbook stuff.

Odorizzi has only gone past 101 pitches once this year, he had a 108 in early June. 92 now.

Wow, Didi. That is 18 runs in their last 7 innings, that seems good.

Twins are really not going to feel good after this series. They were 1 out from winning a series and now look like they were crushed while losing. (Crosses fingers, its only the 4th)

Yanks would have won the first game if not for the triple plays and double plays they hit into.

Not sure why Odorizzi wasn't throwing that slow curve more earlier.

Maybe throw strikes earlier in the count and then you don't have to groove one? Ugh.

Nestor up, Happ not throwing strikes because the ones he does are being crushed.
