Video: Max Kepler guns down a runner in 2nd straight game


We asked the question Thursday night, and we'll ask it again tonight. Why do teams insist on running on Max Kepler?

Kepler threw out a runner in Thursday night's win over Baltimore.

Well, apparently the White Sox didn't watch their game film. Because with two outs in the top of the 9th inning with the go-ahead run in scoring position, Melky Cabrera decides he's going to test Kepler's arm and try to get to third.

Again we ask why?

This is how it turned out.


And Twitter was abuzz talking about the Twins again.
