Who would have thought as crappy as the Minnesota Twins have been over the last couple of years they would be able to hang on to a two-run lead in extras. Wait. That's right, the Twins have a reputation of blowing leads in late innings.

Well, they did it again on Wednesday in Oakland after Byron Buxton belted a two-run homer in the top of the 10th inning for the lead. The A's win the game 13-12 after back-to-back infield throwing errors. Nelson Cruz had a pair of dingers on the day.

Oakland has now won 11 in a row which is tied for their longest win streak since their franchise-record 20-game streak in 2002.

The costly errors just added to the dismal west coast road trip with the Twins going 0-3 with two games postponed due to players testing positive for Covid-19. Minnesota has now lost nine of their last ten games.

Traveling back to Minnesota with a day off Thursday, the Twins beginning a weekend series with the Pittsburgh Pirates on Friday.
