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

Andruw Jones. He's batting seventh and Chavez and Martin are 8 and 9.

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!

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.

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.

Capps always make me so nervous.

Sorry for the mistake, I meant to say Jeter.

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