Almost No-hit, Twins Drop First 2 Games to Texas Rangers

Texas Ranger Rich HardenThe Minnesota Twins lost 4-0 and 4-3 in the first 2 of a 4 game series in Arlington, Texas to the Texas Rangers. On Monday night, Rangers pitcher Rich Harden threw 6 and 2/3 no-hit baseball before being pulled because of a pitch count (sound familiar?). The Rangers continued the no-hitter with their bullpen into the 9th inning when Joe Mauer finally broke it up with 2 outs left in the game. His line drive single barely avoided shortstop Elvis Andrus's glove. With that said, the team lost 4-0.

On Tuesday night, the Twins could not capitalize on their scoring chances and lost 4-3. Carl Pavano pitched a complete game but the Twins could not deliver when they had guys on the bases. Hopefully we can steal the last 2 games before heading to Seattle. Brian Duensing goes against C.J. Wilson tonight in Arlington.
