Twins 8, Rays 3

Twins finish April at .500.

Scott Kazmir was atypically touchable on Wednesday night, giving Minnesota all the run support they'd need in a four-run bottom of the first.  Four walks and nine hits through just four innings made for a short night, and for most of the game the outcome was never in doubt.

On the other hand, Nick Blackburn put together his second consecutive quality start, allowing just a pair of runs in seven innings, giving up eighth hits and walking just one.

We'll leave it brief tonight, but summing it up:  finishing this month at evens is the big picture.  Considering how this team looked at times, that's an accomplishment.

Stars of the Game
#3:  Brendan Harris (3-for-5, 2 R, RBI)
#2:  Justin Morneau (3-for-5, 2 R, RBI, BB)
#1:  Nick Blackburn (7 IP, 8 H, 2 R, 3 K, BB)
