    1-2-3 for Pavs; good start getting Pujols out (not that people are having problems with that anyway)

    Drew isn't out of options, but this is his final option year, because he has been sent down to AAA and called back up, so his arbitration status starts next year :|-

    No 3 run start tonite; going to need to start scoring more runs in order to keep winning

    Valencia is seriously struggling as he flies out to Hunter... have the Twins tried to do anything to help him out of his slump, or are they waiting for him to get bad enough so that they send him down to the minors and bring someone else up?

    Twins waste even more chances to score as Komatsu GIDP

    Aybar was about a foot in front of the batter's box when he hit that ball.

    Unusual...E3 by Mauer; not good when your 1b makes a throwing error to let another run come in. No luck for the Twins

    The "Son of Sal" needs to be captured and put in his rightful place as a Single-A Player or a minor league coach. I must say though, the "Like Father Like Son" saying has some validity in the Butera family.

    Butera gets out again...on a groundout; Twins need to start capitalizing on opportunities more, especially with their start to the second inning
