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.

They are going to need 13 pitchers in this game . . .

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
