Episode details

The Twins lost 3-2 to the Royals in Friday's season opener. That was Minnesota's second straight loss after winning six straight. Devin Smeltzer pitched well and the back end of the bullpen showed up admirably. Matt Wisler made a mistake on a slider to Ryan McBroom that put the Royals up 3-2 for good.

The Royals' bullpen was unbelievably dominant. The Twins' bats went cold. They'll look to rebound Saturday against Danny Duffy as Jake Odorizzi makes his season debut.
