Scoring Change Sets Record For Twins' Pitching Staff

How badly did the Minnesota Twins' pitching staff get hammered on Monday night against the Los Angeles Dodgers?

The Dodgers are still getting hits an hour after the game is over.

Twins' shortstop Tsuyoshi Nishioka was charged with two errors in the 15-0 thumping the Twins suffered on Monday night. When the dust settled at Target Field, the scoreboard said that the Twins had allowed 24 hits, which tied the team record set in an 18-8 loss to the Seattle Mariners on June 11, 1996.

However, according to various sources on Twitter, one of the errors committed by Nishioka has been changed to a hit. That means that the Twins allowed 25 hits to the Dodgers and not 24, which means that it was a record-setting night at Target Field. . .for the wrong team.

Just consider it to be yet another down in a season full of ups and downs for your Minnesota Twins.
