Saved By (De)Jesus

Rays.jpgPut simple, the Twins stunk again tonight…in nearly aspect of the game.  Kevin Slowey was roughed up for 5 earned runs over four innings, while Reyes and Guerrier also had their own struggles in relief.  The bats were held in check (even after loading the bases with no outs in the fourth inning) until they produced two garbage-time runs in the ninth, shortly before the raucous celebration above began.

Of course, in the division (AL Central) that nobody wants to win, the White Sox gave the Twins another reprieve when they lost in Kansas City, partly due to an inside-the-park homer from David DeJesus.

I am so disgusted by the Twins’ play of late that this is all I have to say tonight.  I’m not giving up until the Twins are a mathimatical impossibility to win the division, but it has been tough to watch as of late.

Preview (83-72, 2.5 GB CWS): Francisco Liriano (5-3, 3.62) vs. Andy Sonnanstine (13-7, 4.33).  With Cisco on the mound, the Twins should be given a decent chance to win…if they can take advantage.
