TWINS WIN!

The Twins finally pulled out another victory tonight, 4-3 over the Orioles. They are now 2-4 since the AS Break, with all games being 1-run games. Once again, they got very good pitching, but couldn't hit the ball, until they finally turned it on in the 9th. With Joe Mauer on first, Shannon Stewart struck out. On that pitch, Mauer stole second, and the Orioles threw it into CF, allowing Mauer to advance to third. On the next pitch, Ryan threw a wild pitch, allowing Mauer to score. LeCroy walked, Hunter singled, and then Jacque Jones hit an infield single to win it.

With this win, the Twins are now 12 back of the Chi Sox, and are tied for the wild card lead with the Yankees. Brad Radke is on the mound tomorrow night against Baltimore, looking to get the series win.

Just as an update, Twins win today 3-2 after a solo HR by Jacque Jones in the 9th! He's the hero two straight days. :D

Great game yesterday.

It's funny to me that when Boone isn't playing the Twins win. :P

Boone played well tonight.

Sorry guys, didn't get home till late tonight. I'll try to post tomorrow, where I should have a fairly good topic (hopefully).
