    This would be a good time for Justin to paste one.

    Yep. And they scored for him.

    Well, I wonder how much slack they'll give DeVries in the 7th. With the all-star break, there's no worries about using up the bullpen. A close 1-0 game may cause them to move quickly if trouble develops.

    Saw on MLB.com the twins pitching rotation out of the all-star break. Liriano Duensing then either Devries or Deduno then they are debating what to do with Diamond (since they want to back off his innings). How about liriano Duensing Devries Deduno Walters Liriano then Diamond. Then Duensing can go back to the pen?

    I agree, but I also think there would be a big emotional boost in the clubhouse to win this game, so I don't think they'll gamble too much. You want to go into the all-star break on a high, and what could be better than winning a series against the best team in the AL, in their park, and having a 4-3 road trip.

    No reason to pull him in the 8th either. He isn't getting lucky. He's pitching real well and is facing the bottom half of the lineup. Hopefully we get a run or 2 for him here

    I agree. Too bad Gardenhire disagrees.

    Great idea to bring in Fein with a one run lead -- sink or swim. Who cares if the Twins win.

    If he had shone signs of being tired the last inning, then absolutely I would pull him. But in this case, I'm surprised he didn't go back out.

    Having Fien pitch the 8th doesn't seem to go with that theory.

    He threw only 84 pitches through the 7th. I am amazed that he did not go back out for at least a batter ir two. Maybe he told the coaches that he is tired/injured.

    I would have sent DeVries out, with the understanding that the moment a runner got in scoring position, he was done.

    Way to go, Casey. Through 'em a little chin music. Get the Texas bench all fired up.

    That was his debut. Hopefully they understand that.

    With all due respect for Joe Nathan, I hope that the Twins blow him off the mound.

    So if the error is on the pitcher, is it an earned run?

    Nice throw, Joe.
    There isn't enough defense on the planet to justify giving 500+ PA to a guy who can barely OPS .600.

    Wow, Nathan choking. A base hit now blows this open.
