It's become pretty evident that the Twins' starting pitchers have simply given up. After Kyle Lohse and Brad Radke got shelled and had to come out early last week, leading to broken doors and reports of "suicidal" feelings, Carlos Silva came out tonight and lasted only one inning, allowing the Indians' first four batters to hit for the cycle in a four run inning. Joe Mays came in in the second but provided little relief as the carved him up for 6 more runs.
Triple A call-up Travis Bowyer pitched a couple innings, allowing one run on three hits and striking out one. That was really the only point of interest in this embarrassing 12-4 blowout.
