It is incredible how time flies and how the 2014 MLB regular season is advancing at a pretty fast pace. In less than 4 weeks the 85th edition of the Major League Baseball All-Star game will be taking place at Target Field and the Minneapolis Convention Center.
Baseball’s best players will be part of this fantastics summer baseball party for five consecutive days starting on July 15, 2014. There is no doubt this is a very special edition as it is the first time the All-Star Game is played at Target Field.
Furthermore, so far in the regular season the Minnesota Twins have been on a roll against AL East teams and it was proven once more on Wednesday’s evening as Minnesota carried out a 7-2 win over Toronto Blue Jays. Minnesota players Phil Hughes threw 7 scoreless innings, while Kendrys Morales and Josh Willingham contributed three RBIs each.
“It says a lot,” Hughes said. “This is a tough division to pitch in, especially on the road. These are some tough ballparks to pitch in. So to be able to come in here and win this series is huge, especially with their offensive ability.”
For us, it all starts with our starter, and it was a super job again from him,” Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said. “He was changing speeds like we’ve been seeing and used his breaking ball a lot better today.
On the other hand, the Blue Jays’ offense was bound to struggle and their high-powered bats were missing in action against Minnesota. Toronto entered Wednesday’s game in danger of not being able to score for the 4th time in five different games.
“I think we’ve cooled off pretty good, pretty much top to bottom in the lineup … but that’s the way it goes,” Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said. “Hughes was really good. He turned some corners since he moved to Minnesota.
“The key is you can’t prolong the struggles. You’ve got to put an end to them. The bats will heat up again, hopefully sooner than later.
