Gardenhire happy to see club's offense on the rise
CLEVELAND -- The Twins' offense has been on fire since the All-Star break, as the club leads the Majors in runs scored since then with 136.

Minnesota also leads the Majors with a .291 batting average over that stretch. And it has Twins manager Ron Gardenhire happy with the way his club has been swinging the bat.

"We feel like we can score some runs," Gardenhire said. "Always a pitcher can shut you down here and there, and you're always going to have that, but basically on an everyday basis, we feel pretty good about this. They can go out there and hack. We've got some pretty good hitters in there. We've got some guys who can run. So we feel pretty good. We're scoring some runs."

But while the offense has been solid, the Twins are 12-12 since the All-Star break due to the fact that the club's 4.46 ERA ranks 20th in baseball since then.
