5 Game Win Streak Ends, Blackburn Loses
Nick Blackburn, who was 5-0 in May, was probably sad to see the calendar flip to June and it showed Tuesday night. Blackburn lasted only 3 2/3 innings and allowed five runs in what was his shortest outing since September 11, 2009. After Morneau tied the game at one a piece with a home run in the 3rd inning, it was all Mariners. The Twins are in serious danger of losing the next two games to the Mariners considering they must now face the two-headed monster of Felix Hernandiz and Cliff Lee to end the series. Cliff Lee has already won a Cy Young and Hernandez has that kind of talent. It will be interesting to see how the Twins fair against these dominant pitchers.
