Introduction: Host Michael Rand laments the Twins' missed chances in a bad 3-2 loss to the Royals on Thursday and takes note of how during their hot streak the Twins went 14-2 in games decided by one run or two runs.

The Twins will hope that Byron Buxton is due for a progression, not more regression, after finally snapping his 0-for-30 skid.
