Twins win 6-1 and the game was called after 8 innings because of rain. A rube is the term that KFAN uses for fans of Minnesota sports teams, including the Twins. A member named Crishad thinks that Scott Baker is a Yankee killer.

Baker’s numbers against the Yankees in two games this season: 12 IP, 5 hits, 2 ER, 4 walks and 8 strikeouts. Pretty good against the most expensive team in the league.

Justin Morneau finally got a homerun, his 33rd of the year, with two men on base to give him 114 RBI on the year.

Michael Cuddyer got a sacrifice fly RBI, making him just 9 RBI short of the Benjamin mark.

Rondy White was hitless in two at bats, and Lew Ford came in to pinch hit for him in the 8th.

Francisco Liriano threw off of a mound with spikes on today, and he says he feels great. He threw all of his pitches close to game-type speeds.

Today is the final game in the NY series, and it starts at noon. If Matt Garza pitches effectively, he should get some more media attention and people won’t think he’s a flop.
