TWINS WIN-recap of Wednesday's 9/25 Game Against the Yankee's

Twins 5, Yankees 4. 

What?! This winning score is not something Twins fans are used to seeing. 

Denard Span doubled in the tying and go-ahead runs during a four-run seventh inning as our hosts, Minnesota, battled back to topple the New York Yankees.

Joe Mauer, who was lookin' good, went 3-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored and Chris Parmelee doubled in a run for the Twins, who are embracing the spoiler role with wins in three of their last four games against the Detroit Tigers and the Yankees. What a surprise!

Phil Hughes (16-13) cruised through the first six innings but loaded the bases with one out in the seventh before being replaced by left-hander Boone Logan. The veteran reliever uncorked a wild pitch to narrow the gap to one run before Span reached down for a 3-2 slider and lined it into the gap in right-center to plate a pair. Mauer made it a 5-3 lead with an RBI single later in the frame.

Casey Fien (2-1) ended up with the win in relief and Jared Burton pitched a perfect eighth. Glen Perkins served up a solo homer to Jones but managed to get the final three outs for his 15th save.

Wanna know a secret? I went to this Tuesday's game, mainly because I have a roommate who is a Brewers fan and I wanted her to see Twins action AND because we got really cheap, great tickets through my internship. But, I had SO much homework so we left at the top of the 7th inning, not expecting the Twins to come back and win the game. But. They did. My bad.
