Twins Win Series

Scott Baker pitched another good game today, adding to an impressive Major League resume. Baker allowed just one run through 5 innings (a Travis Hafner solo homer) before getting hit around a bit in the 6th and being taken out. His final line for the day still was quite impressive: 5.1 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 2 ER, 4 K, 1 BB. The Twins did garner enough offense to get the victory 7-5, with Lew Ford going 3/4 and Mike Redmond (who's now hitting .300, he's been a nice addition) knocking in 3 runs.

It was a nice little victory for the Twins, but they themselves admitted at the beginning of this series that in order to keep any realistic hope of catching the Wild Card they needed a series sweep, which they were unable to accomplish thanks to a putrid effort on Friday night.
