Nice lefty-heavy lineup to take on Kuroda, who was awfully good his last time out.

Good. Who'd they stick in LF then?

First pitch home run by Morneau. REALLY nice to see.

Good. Who'd they stick in LF then? Andruw Jones. He's batting seventh and Chavez and Martin are 8 and 9.

They had better keep scoring runs tonight - 4 in not going to be enough - gonna need 7 or 8

or 15

Marquis fits right in. Took to the whole pitch to contact thing like a natural.

Saved the lead with a DP. Can't win much of anything with these pitching performances.

Nice to see Casilla get another hit. He's now 6 for his last 19 with 1 walk and 1 strikeout.

Nice 2nd inning for Marquis... would be nice if he can settle down and throw 5 innings tonight. I know, eventually we'll expect more, but for tonight, with all the family there, coming back, having his daughter able to be at the game... the human side has to take over a little. Emotional!

Wow. Morneau is back.

I sure had my doubts about his ability to come back...but, this is SO GREAT to see. Good for him!

Morneau has yet to get a hit against lefties this year.

So? Bench him?

Yes, because he was always a total strikeout machine up to now.

Good game so far. Love seeing Morneau hitting the cover off the ball.

It's 6-4 Twins but man, I tell ya, a 2-run lead feels like a 3-run deficit when we're playing in the Bronx.

Sadly he is still a better option then our current "ace" Liriano

Morneau thus far has been SUPER encouraging, not only is he exceeding my expectations on what he would do this year, but he is starting to suddenly look like the Monreau of old, which would absolutely be huge for this team moving forward.

Can't ask for more than that from Burton. Nice job.

At least A-Rod won't be able to tie it when he parks one in the upper-deck off of Capps.

Sorry for the mistake, I meant to say Jeter.

For a reason, for a reason.I know. It is like he is trying to give a heart attack. He got lucky with that last hit.

really classy of the yankee fans to throw cups at thomas as he was about to make the catch to end the game. luckily the fans had Revere's arm and they landed short of interfering.

I'm going to go with my heart and say that I really do think we can win tomorrow in a 5-4 victory and take down the evil empire. Take 3/4!!!

I don't know if the Twins are going to go 4-158 the rest of the way, but this series is going to be a highlight of the season for sure.

even a split a Yankee stadium is great. If they win the series tomorrow, that would be epic
