Twins 9, Yankees 4: Holy Cow, Twins Beat the Yankees.

Going into tonight's game, the Twins had lost 21 of their past 24 games against the Yankees. After tonight's game, the Twins have only lost 3 of their last 5 against the Yankees. Progress!

Tonight, the Twins scored seven earned runs off Yankee starting pitcher A.J. Burnett, who hence lasted all of 1 and 2/3 innings. Former Twin Luis Ayala pitched a pretty successful inning for the Yankees, before newly acquired Yankee Aaron Laffey came in and gave up another 2 earned runs to the Twins. Thanks Aaron!

Francisco Liriano was a stud starter for the Twins. As for relief, Alex Burnett gave up 2 runs in the 8th inning, and Matt Capps gave up another run in the 9th--but for once, the Twins had scored enough runs to sustain the 2011 bullpen.

Without further ado:

Studs:

(Sorry--but we don't get to make lists like this very often)

Duds:

  • The Yankees
  • Internet trolls.

With a win tomorrow, the Twins can split the series.

GO TWINS GO!
