On Satuday, behind Brian Duensing's complete game 3 hitter the Minnesota Twins defeated the Oakland A's 2-0. Joe Mauer was 3-4. On Sunday, Minnesota completed the sweep with a 4-2 victory. Pitcher Kevin Slowey threw 7 innings of no hit baseball before being pulled - but that's for the next post. The Minnesota Twins continue to stay hot after the All-Star break even with Justin Morneau on the DL. Keep it up Twins!

Minnesota Twins SWEEP Oakland A's
The Minnesota Twins swept the Oakland Athletics over the weekend at Target Field. Not a bad way to start a homestand. Simply put: The Twins are playing good baseball. They now lead the AL Central by 3 games and have a crucial series with the Chicago White Sox. On Friday, Carl Pavano pitched for his 15th victory and the Twins won a game that they probably were outplayed 4-3. The A's outhit the Twins by 9 hits. Postgame fire works followed the game - which I was at and was awesome!
