    Fansided: Minnesota Twins postgame report: Pitching falters again in loss to Athletics

    The Minnesota Twins are beginning to feel things tighten up in the American League Central these days and it's contributed to some nail-biting moments for their fans. As the Twins dropped the second of a four-game series with the Oakland Athletics on Friday night, the Cleveland Indians picked up a win over the Kansas City Royals, cutting their lead to just three games.

    In the latest loss of a Twins team that many feel is slipping, Minnesota got off to a rough start and an offense that once again couldn't get the big hit, came up just short as the A's came away with a 5-3 victory on a tropical night at Target Field.

    Fansided: Minnesota Twins: Three biggest series that remain on the schedule

    The Minnesota Twins look to fend off the Cleveland Indians for first place in the AL Central. With that said, let's take a look at three matchups I think could make or break the Twins season.

    August 8th-11th Cleveland visits Target Field

    The Minnesota Twins are slowly losing the division lead on the Cleveland Indians which is why this series will be such an important one in a few weeks. It's the first 4 of 10 remaining games between the two powerhouse teams of the AL Central. Not only will it be big in terms of the divisional race but the Twins head to Milwaukee and Texas shortly after to begin a 6-game road trip.

    Fansided: Minnesota Twins rumors: The Twins seem to be gearing up for something

    As the Minnesota Twins fell into their first three-game losing streak of the season earlier this week, widespread panic reached to all corners of Twins Territory. Never mind that the Twins' skid is the shortest among current division leaders this season, the sky is falling at Target Field and if something isn't done about the pitching staff, there may be riots at 1 Twins Way.

    In all seriousness, the Twins probably do need to do something about that bullpen. After a pair of hanging sliders by Trevor May and a train wreck performance by Matt Magill, the Twins once-comfy lead over the Cleveland Indians has condensed to four games and with 12 days until the MLB trade deadline, everyone is starting to get a little antsy.

    Fansided: Minnesota Twins: A six-pack of relief pitchers that could help fortify the bullpen

    On July 1st, the Minnesota Twins held what seemed like a comfortable eight-game lead in the American League Central Division over the Cleveland Indians. Things seemed even cozier after the Twins took two out of three games against the Indians in Cleveland to start the second half the season that gave the Twins a six-game lead.

    Fast forward to the present and Twins Territory is now on the edge of their seats. That comfortable lead in the division has turned to ash and it's like Thanos snapped his fingers. Rocco, Twins Territory doesn't feel so good. That lead in the division is now just four games, as the Twins have lost three straight, while the Indians have gone 8-2 in their last 10 games.

    Fansided: Minnesota Twins post game: Eddie Rosario saves the day

    The Minnesota Twins powered their way back to the win column against the Oakland A's thanks in part to Eddie Rosarios 3-run no-doubter.

    Kyle Gibson would get the start for the Minnesota Twins as he faced off against former Detroit Tigers pitcher Mike Fiers. Gibson had a pretty successful outing throwing 7 innings of 6 hit and 3-run ball while securing 7 strikeouts. Just enough for Kyle to earn the win, he grabbed his 9th of the season. Gibson also threw 106 pitches with 73 of them being strikes, a pretty solid outing for Gibby.

    Fansided: Minnesota Twins: Matt Magill becomes latest bullpen member to be designated for assignment

    Chances are that if you're a member of the Minnesota Twins' bullpen, you're having a rough week. As Trevor May hung a pair of curveballs to blow leads on Sunday and Wednesday, the Twins also saw several other relievers get lit up as they try to stay atop the American League Central.

    With the lead over the Cleveland Indians shrinking to four games, the Twins are beginning to get antsy. While a major move to bolster the bullpen hasn't been made, Chief Baseball Officer Derek Falvey and General Manager Thad Levine have made minor moves for the time being with the hope that a big one is on the horizon.

    Fansided: Minnesota Twins series preview: Pressure mounts as Twins host surging A's

    After taking care of business in Cleveland last weekend, the Minnesota Twins turned in one of their worst series of the year after getting swept by the New York Mets. While the series was thankfully just a two-game set, the Twins had some uncharacteristic moments such as poor defense in the field and a lineup that couldn't seem to find the big hit.

    While the Twins have played .500 baseball as of late, they're starting to feel the pressure from a charging Cleveland Indians squad. While the Twins have gone 18-18 in their past 36 games, the Indians have rattled off a 25-10 stretch that has cut what was an 11.

    Fansided: Minnesota Twins rumors: Could the Twins land Noah Syndergaard at the deadline?

    It's no secret that the Minnesota Twins are looking for pitching ahead of the MLB trade deadline. Between now and July 31, the Twins are likely to be linked to several names both in the starting and relief pitching markets. While some names have already been mentioned, there are others that could pop up out of nowhere.

    As the Twins target some of the names that have been tossed around all season long, one of the names that fans may not expect is New York Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard. In an article by ESPN's David Schoenfield, he mentions that now is the time for the combination of Chief Baseball Officer Derek Falvey and General Manager Thad Levine to think big.
