Buehrle Baffles Twins Again

Tom Szczerbowski

Twins drop sixth game in a row as offense comes up short north of the border between Canada and the United States of America

Mark Buehrle was his usual dominating self against the Minnesota Twins on Friday night, pitching seven shutout innings as Toronto blanked the Twins, 4-0. It was Minnesota's sixth loss in a row, and puts them a season low 12 games under .500.

Buehrle, who did the same thing to Minnesota about 1000 times (approximation) when he was with Chicago, kept the Twins at bay while the Blue Jays offense got to the Kevin Correia in the third on a Jose Bautista solo dong, then followed it up with three more runs in the fourth. It was more than enough against a Twins team that is frustrated and looking for answers, as LaVelle's post-game report notes. Gardenhire actually used the "working their tails off" line, which tells you all you need to know.

Get 'em tomorrow, I guess? Oy.
