Minnesota Twins SWEEP Oakland A's

Minnesota Twins Sweep Oakland A'sThe 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!

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!
