Michael Cuddyer hit a grand slam yesterday and a 7-run first inning allowed the Twins to skate to an 8-4 win to salvage the series. The Texas Rangers, the very team that struck out 17 times against Johan Santana (and 19 times overall in that game) scored 30 runs against the Orioles yesterday in one game (a modern-day record for most runs scored in a game). The Orioles are the team we start a 3-game series against tonight. Is there hope after all?
