The Minnesota Twins lost their final game of the season to the Toronto Blue Jays 2-1 as they finish the season with a slight improvement going 66-96. Scott Diamond (12-9) pitched decently going five innings and allowing only two earned runs.
The Twins have been the laughingstock of the American League the past two years and it is incredibly frustrating watching them. Their offense this year under performed multiple times along with their starting pitching staff. There is no reason this team should have finished with less than 70 wins.
Diamond, who started started the season 9-4 with a 2.88 ERA, ended 12-9 with a 3.54 ERA. Diamond showed so much promise to start the year and then ended up pitching poorly in his last few starts. The Twins are going to need to make some changes if they want their rotation to improve at all.
Diamond gave up a two out triple in the bottom of the third, and then back to back singles to score two runs. Unfortunately, the Twins could only manufacture one run. This is a storyline written about all too much.
Tonight the Twins play no one. They will also play no one tomorrow. This season was over after the first month, which is absolutely pathetic.Tags: American League, Baseball, Minnesota, Minnesota Twins, MLB, Scott Diamond
