Johan Santana needed just 10 pitches to throw his 1 inning, striking out 2. Justin Morneau and Torii Hunter were both hitless in 2 at-bats.

Tonight we start a homestand by playing the Oakland A’s. Game starts at 7:10 and we’ve got Scott Baker against Chad Gaudin, who absolutely killed us last time he faced us. Hopefully that’s incentive enough for the lineup to give him his 4th loss of the season.
