Minnesota Twins Take Final Rangers Game, 2 of 3 from the Seattle Mariners

Nick BlackburnThe Minnesota Twins took the final game of a 4 game series with the Texas Rangers by a score of 6-4. They defeated the ace of the staff Cliff Lee and Delmon Young's 3 run home run was huge in the 2rd inning. Francisco Liriano pitched wonderfully in 7 innings and Jim Thome also homered for the Twins.

In a 3 game series in Seattle over the weekend, the Minnesota Twins won the first 2 before losing on Sunday afternoon. The Minnesota Twins won 6-3 on Friday night and 1-0 on Saturday afternoon. Scott Baker picked up the win on Friday night behind Joe Mauer's 3-5 night with 2 RBI. Nick Blackburn pitched a gem on Saturday afternoon, with 8 2/3 innings and only surrending 2 hits (both in the 1st inning). Brian Fuentes recorded the save on the last out of the game. On Sunday, the Mariners scored 2 runs in the 7th inning and beat the Twins 2-1.

  1. really wish we would have won the last games. 5 games ahead of the sox sounds better than 4.5. besides, the upcoming series against detroit and texas, again, will be very tough.

    anyway, welcome back to target field twinks.
