Mike Redmond and Joe Mauer each had 2 RBI in the 8th to propel the team past the Tigers.
Ramon Ortiz pitched a pretty good game, allowing only 2 runs over 6 innings of work. He did walk 4 but again, just 2 runs. Unfortunately for him he didn’t get the win as the Twins first scored in the 7th off of Justin Morneau‘s 5th homer of the season..
Jesse Crain got the official win, giving up 2 hits and a run in 1 inning of work..
Joe Nathan got his 7th save of the season and he actually looked to be in good form, allowing no base runners and needing just 12 pitches to retire the 3 batters (one via a strikeout)..
The game today starts at noon and will see former Rookie of the Year Justin Verlander for the Tigers against Carlos Silva for us.
