Twins’ losing streak grows to 4 games after Guards take Game 1

When the Twins and Guardians get together they are almost always low-scoring affairs, and Friday was no different as the Twins opened the scoring, surrendered the lead, came back to tie the game and then watched it all go away after the Guards’ Jose Ramirez hit a solo shot for the 3-2 win.

Hi, I’m Rolf Boone, Twins fan.

I became a fan of the Minnesota Twins after a friendly wager in the early 1980s. I survived Ron Davis, the meltdown in Cleveland, Phil Bradley at the Kingdome and then marveled at a rising generation of stars and two World Series wins in 1987 and 1991. Brad Radke made the 1990s bearable, while Kirby Puckett’s eye injury, exit from the game and eventual death made it almost too much to bear. The new century ushered in more talent — Joe Mauer, Johan Santana, Joe Nathan, Torii Hunter, Justin Morneau — and consecutive seasons of playoff baseball, followed by consecutive seasons of losing baseball. A winning season returned in 2015. So here we are. Go Twins.
