The Minnesota Twins hit every double that has ever been hit. The Cincinnati Reds did not.

Rest assured, the Cincinnati Reds are still going to the playoffs, though. Fuhgeddaboutit.

Key Plays

  • The Cincinnati Reds...
  • ...are going to the playoffs.
  • Twins won, 7-3.

Other Notes

  • The Cincinnati Reds are going to the playoffs.
  • Luis Castillo got hit somewhat hard. Forget about it.
  • If you’d prefer not to forget about it and dig deeper, here’s a link to FanGraphs’ coverage of the game, rife with charts and graphs and fans and graphs and fangraphs.
  • Sonny Gray is still slated to start Sunday’s series finale between the Reds and Twins, as possible seeding issues are at stake for both Cincinnati and Minnesota. Gray, for what it’s worth, is scheduled to start the third game of the opening playoff series after Trevor Bauer and Luis Castillo, but he obviously could still use a bit of work as he gets back in full form after his IL stint.
  • First pitch Sunday is set for 1:10 PM ET.
