Twins earn a split of the series with Texas and are now 11-10 on the year. Kevin Correia pitched 8 scoreless innings, scattering 6 hits and picking up 2 strikeouts. He leads all Twins pitchers in Wins (3) and starters in ERA (2.23) and WHIP (1.07). Morneau hit his 2nd HR of the year, a [...]
The Mountie walks off the Tribe with a 9th inning home run, his second donger of the game, and the Dunce gets a win.
They lost again today, their fifth in a row. Needless to say, they were swept in a 3 game series by the Devil Rays. Diamond picked up a no decision, Burnett took the loss. Morneau hit a 2-run homer, his 16th and Span injured his shoulder on a sprawling attempt at a catch in short [...]
