Trevor May on earning his first save of the season: "It means a lot to me. It's something I've worked really hard on."
Trevor May got a very, uh, generous 3-2 called strikeout for the first out of the ninth inning, allowing him to avoid a bases-loaded, no-outs mess.
Related note: Jason Castro leads American League catchers in pitch framing on a per-pitch basis this season.
Trevor May works around the 2 singles to start T9 and the #MNTwins top the Mariners 6-5 after a 3-run rally in the eighth.
May’s first save.
Win to Matt Magill two days after social media released him.
"Uh yeah, table for 20? Not exactly sure, hopefully about 45 minutes. Name is Trevor. Trevor May. Yeah, the Fortnite guy. I pitch too. Uh, we're still playing. What? We're up by one in the... Anyways, you got that table?" https://t.co/5a9GcCZ647
Gutsy effort by Trevor May. Loved the choice to go to him there. I say give him a shot at holding down closer duties. He was great in the role late last year, and was open about how much he enjoyed it. Why not?
The Twins score three runs in the eighth to comeback and beat the Mariners 6-5. Marwin Gonzalez had the go-ahead single. Jonathan Schoop and Jason Castro homered in the game. Win to Matt Magill, save to Trevor May.

Here's Trevor May with an incredible amount of insight for a postgame interview.
He really has a lot to say.
Rocco Baldelli said Taylor Rogers was not available tonight out of the bullpen because of back tightness. That enabled Trevor May to take the ninth and get his first save of the season.
It just so happened that I have a Trevor May card or two set aside to give away. Seems like the right time to fish those out, will send more details tomorrow.
Thanks everybody. I have a lot more followers now than I did in March, and a lot of you have helped with that growth.

Trevor May after the game....
“Gotta give a shout out to the home plate umpire! Now I’m gonna run. Gotta a Fortnight game I have to get to.”
#MNTwins hoping Eddie Rosario isn’t an All-Star snub after last year. Plus,
Keoni Cavaco signs, Matt Magill shines, Trevor May comes through, Marwin Gonzalez has the big hit and Jorge Polanco hustled his way to the tie running.
Now updated with notes on the #MNTwins' rally, Jorge Polanco's big night, Trevor May's save and Matt Magill's scoreless outing. https://t.co/QsU15vhzyo
Trevor May said once he got two strikes on Kyle Seager with two outs in the 9th, Seager was getting nothing but fastballs. "I was going to go right after him," he said. May's fourth career save; other three came last September. #MNTwins
Trevor May saves the day
TIL Trevor May is a baseball player and not just a twitch/fortnite streamer.
Even with Taylor Rogers unavailable with a minor back issue, it was still surprising to see Trevor May with the save for the #MNTwins and not Blake Parker, who leads the Twins in saves and had yesterday off. Looking at FIP, ERA & recent performance, maybe it's not so surprising.
Per #MNTwins mgr Rocco Baldelli, Trevor May pitched the 9th tonight in part because Taylor Rogers (back tightness) wasn't available.
I love Rocco’s decision to have Trevor May pitch the 9th.
Trevor May post game interview worse than his command. How about saying: “I was so scared to throw a breaking ball, I just threw it as hard as I could.”
Trevor May FIP was better than Kimbrel last year. Now limited games but there is talent there. Control an issue this year but Hoping great 2nd half.
Twins need a closer.
Trevor May was lucky the Ump was in a giving mood...that was ball four, bases loaded, no outs. https://t.co/BgglFZ4ck9
The last time Trevor May faced Edwin Encarnacion, he allowed a 3-run homer that broke open a tight game on May 19. That was 3 of the 4 earned runs May has allowed in 20 outings, dating back to April 18, & the only HR May has allowed this season for the #MNTwins.
Trevor May is now battling with Schoop for my favorite player
T9: #ComeBack #3....w/the score 6-5, Rocco brings in #65 RHP Trevor May & w/2 on & no outs, he comes back to get the next 3 batters, strikeout, popout, popout for his 1st Save of the Season!
#MNTwins 6, #TrueToTheBlue 5 | Final
W-Magill (2-0) S-May (1)
Please God save us from Trevor May. A 2 man BP as it stands now and May aint of them.
Thank You #MNTwins for Rallying To Win being Down to #Mariners by 2 after Top of 8th Ended! Great Rally, But Martin Perez was Not Goid for 3rd Game in A Row, & Rocco's Decision to Use Trevor May to Close Out Game Was Risky, & Almost Put Game On The Line; Could Have Lost #MNTwins
Mike estabrook absolutely saved the twins that game. Would’ve been bases loaded nobody out instead Trevor May gets a huge break and gets a free out. Mlb umpires simply can not miss a call that badly. Unacceptable https://t.co/0Jo5ak7T8s
