Another solo shot (x2) by Plouffe! (17 & 18)
Another bomb by WillingHAMMER. (17)
Another A 3-run homer by Butters (1) - wait, what?!? That's right, 4 homeruns in one game.
Another vulture for Gray (4-0)
Another 9th inning opportunity for Perkins (which looked awfully Crapps-Tastic) but in which he got the job done...eventually.
Another series win.
More after the jump.
The Twins are now 33-45, 6-4 over their last 10 and 8.5 games back of the White Sox. They head to Detroit for 4 games and Texas for 3 more before the All Star Break.
Joe Mauer is the Twins' lone representative to the Mid-Summer Classic (July 10 in Kansas City). He's currently hitting .324 with a .414 OBP and .445 SLG and is on a 9 game hitting streak (.388, 14-36).
In other news, Tiger wins at Congressional - passing Jack Nicklaus and into second place on the PGA Tour with 74 career wins. He only has eight to go to reach Sam Snead's record. At some point last year, we here at the WGOM talked about whether Tiger would ever win again; not would he ever win another major, but would he ever win again at this level. Seems like we know at least part of the answer.
