Twins 4, Mariners 2: Yohan Pino Gets First Major League Win, Sent Down

For once it was the OTHER team he loaded the bases twice and couldn't get anything done. After ten years of toiling in the minor leagues, 30 year-old Yohan Pino earned his first Major League win tonight for the Twins against the Mariners. He was then promptly sent back down to AAA, but let's not dwell on that. Let's just think about the good game the Twins had tonight, shall we? The Mariners started the scoring in the bottom of the second inning, when Jyle Seagar hit a solo home run. Their lead did not last long, as Sam Fuld walked and Brian Dozier singled to put men on second and first....

Twins 2, Mariners 0: Phil Hughes out duels Chris Young in return to dominance

It was kind of like the game on Monday, except the exact opposite. Both Phil Hughes and Mariners' starter Chris Young had strong outings for their teams today, but it was Hughes, in a return to dominance, who won the duel. Young pitched a strong 7 innings, giving up only two earned runs, but Hughes pitched a stronger 7.1 innings, giving up no earned runs and no walks with eight strikeouts to earn his first win since June 22nd. Unlike last night, the Twins batters were able to back up Hughes's performance, mostly with help from power-hitting center fielder Sam Fuld. Fuld had a three hit...

Yu Darvish dominates Twins as Rangers win 5-0

Blanked. The Twins have extended their road losing streak to ten games, pushing their record away from Target Field to 17-26. The lengthy streak coincides with the club's slide away from .500, although the record at home is still in the black at 19-17. On Saturday, Yu Darvish was the alpha and the omega of this latest in the run of defeats on the road. In eight innings he allowed just four hits and a walk while striking out ten and, as you can tell by the headline, he didn't allow a single run. His backing wasn't an onslaught, but the Rangers offense didn't need to be overwhelming. Sam Fuld...
