Sox Win, Twins Lose, Thomas Rocks

Only 17,640 turned out last night in Minnesota. I'm surprised all those Sox haters up north didn't come out to jeer. They're probably happy they stayed home after the Sox routed the Twins 10-3.

The Sox have now outscored the Twins 24-10 in their four games this year. Unfortunately, 21 of those runs were scored in two games and the Sox have only managed 2 wins.

I mentioned the other day how frustrating it is watching the Twins comeback to win so many games the last few years. I thought it may have been some type of cognitive bias, but it turns out the Twins have had a awful a lot of these types of wins the last few years.

Black Betsy has the facts here.
