KEVIN TAPANI

Game 380 | February 8, 1990 | Gene Larkin, Kevin Tapani, Gary Wayne
This Twins team finished 14 games below .500 and 29 games out of first place, showing little indication of what was to come a year later. Larkin hit .269 with 5 home runs and 42 RBIs. Tapani was the only pitcher with double-figure wins, finishing 12-8. Wayne was 1-1 in 38 short relief appearances.


Game 411 | August 13, 2009 | Kevin Tapani, Willie Banks, Denny Naegle
With pennant fever building, Dunkers welcomed three of the newer additions to the Twins' pitching staff. Tapani, obtained two years earlier in the trade that sent Frank Viola to the Mets, went 16-9 with a 2.99 earned run average for the 1991 Twins. Banks, a product of the team's farm system, made a late-season debut, winning one game. Naegle, a draft choice out of the University of Minnesota, appeared in only seven games.
