Today’s game starts at 12:05 so I’ll make this quick: Johan Santana went 7 innings, gave up 2 runs on 4 hits, walked 2, and struck out 5 to get his 10th win of the season. Jason Kubel hit a 2-run homer in the 7th to give us a 4-2 lead. Luis Rodriguez added his second homer of the year in the 9th to make it 6-2. Nick Punto made a great fielding play at second base, go to Twinsbaseball.com and then click on “Neshek discusses Final Vote” which will bring up the highlight reel box and you can click on Punto’s play from there to see it. Today’s the last day to vote for Pat Neshek to try and get him into the All-Star Game. He’s currently in third place, but fans on his website are taking it into overdrive today. Most of them have pulled all-nighters the past couple of nights, and have worn out their cell phones using the text voting. If you can, try and get in a few votes for him (or more). Kevin Slowey pitches today, hopefully some of the offense we saw yesterday can carry over into today’s game.
