I’ve been really busy lately and didn’t watch any of the games except yesterday’s. The Twins won all 4 and have now won 5 straight.
Jason Bartlett has really turned it on, getting 9 hits in 18 at-bats since coming back from his hamstring injury. In those 9 hits are 1 double and 3 triples, 2 of them coming in yesterday’s game. Overall for the month of August he’s hitting .357 with a .395 OBP and a .600 slugging.
Torii Hunter has also been good, hitting 2 homers in the Baltimore series while racking up 7 RBI, all while continuing his 13-game hitting streak.
The Twins now head to Cleveland for a crucial 3-game series. Carlos Silva takes the mound tonight. All games start at 6:05 central time.
