Duensing Domination

Royals_Twins_Baseball_sff_192722_game.jpgIf the playoffs were to start right now, the Twins would go against the Rays and could trot out Francisco Liriano, Carl Pavano, and Brian Duensing in the first three games.  After Duensing’s domination of the Royals last night, I like those odds.

A starting pitcher SHOULD dominate the paltry KC Royals offerings, and that is exactly what Duensing did.  It may have been the most impressive pitching performance of the season, considering the fact that KC (despite scratching out one weak run) really had no chance against Brian all night long.

Big hits from Tolbert and Span provided the offense against Zack Greinke, who the Twins have now bested four times this season.

I’ll be rooting on my Minnesota Vikings tonight while the Twins hope a plane to Cleveland, but also be keeping my eye on the White Sox game, as a loss could put them a full six games back in the division race!

Preview (83-57, 1st, 5.5 GA CWS): Carl Pavano (16-10, 3.52) vs. Fausto Carmona (11-14, 4.05)
