Pitches per At-Bat Abysmal

Through 6 innings of play tonight against the Cleveland Indians, the twins have seen fewer than 60 pitches. With 20 batters having had at-bats, that is fewer than 3 pitches per plate appearance. How is that working out for them? 2 hits. It took just 7 pitches to retire the side in the first inning and 5 in the 6th. So they trade Castillo and all of a sudden the entire team is swinging at nearly every pitch thrown? They would do better if they never took the bat off their shoulders. And they would probably have had at least as many base runners. If I am the manager, there are a few choice words for the team. Not after the game, but during.
