I don't blame you if you've never heard of Randy Dobnak before. Honestly, the parade of pitchers emerging from the Twins' bullpen after him all came with names more reminiscent of a random-name-generator than any baseball players I can say I'm familiar with. But then I'm sure Twins fans feel similarly about Scott Barlow, Gabe Speier, and Randy Rosario. And, like many young, unknown pitchers before him, Randy Dobnak shut down the Royals as if he were among the best pitchers in all of baseball. And, of course, his bullpen backed him up by not allowing a single earned run (though they did allow two unearned runs.) Eric Skoglund didn't have a bad night on the mound, at least not by his standards.
