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 2-run shot, and is just behind Willingham in RBI at 11.
The Twins head to Detroit where I assume they'd be happy to replicate the success of their previous trip to Motown.
In other news, the Wild slid bass-ackwards into the playoffs for the first time in 5 years by way of a tiebreaker with Columbus. After an ugly game against Edmonton on Friday night, they beat the Avs in requlation on Saturday to secure the 8th (and final) spot in the Western Conference, finishing the regular season with 55 points at 26-19-3. They now head to Chicago for a best of 5 series. Game 1 is tomorrow (Tues, Apr 30) - puck drops at 7pm.
