The Minnesota Twins are doing an awfully bad job of staying out of last place in the American League Central. Not only is that where they currently reside, they're now a full two games behind the Kansas City Royals for that position in the division.

As you can see, the Twins trail the Royals by two games. Some of this has to do with the fact that the Twins have played 146 games to Kansas City's 148 and, hence, have not had as many opportunities to win ball games, but with the way the Twins have played this season, we don't know how much of a difference that would make at this point, anyway.
The Twins can either fight their way out of the basement or cement themselves further into it over the next couple of days, as they have an abbreviated two-game set in Kansas City starting on Tuesday night.
