Fred Lewis and Adam Lind went deep in the first and second respectively, although they were both solo shots and didn't hurt as much as a bases-clearing double by Alex Gonzalez. Another trio of long balls were a knockout blow later in the contest, but this one really wasn't ever a contest.
The lone highlight for the Twins? Michael Cuddyer's solo home run, his eighth of the year.
Baker lasted six innings and didn't walk a soul, with Toronto picking up seven hits. Sadly two were home runs and one was that three-run double. Alex Burnett's inning included another pair of home runs, and the third and final pitcher of the night for the Twins, Ron Mahay, insisted on not being left out and let up the staff's fifth homer.
With the Twins now securely in third place following Chicago's 1-0 win over the Angels yesterday, and the Twins suddenly just five games over .500, you have to ask yourself: what's happening to our pitching?
