Houston is no longer easy to beat. Twins can easily blow this one. (speaking of that...Orioles tonite had 2 consecutive winning runs thrown out at the plate in the 10th before predictably losing in the 11th. Stupid moronic coaching staff sends Nelson Cruz trying to steal home...guy may be slowest runner on the team---with Chris Davis up!. Shows how much confidence they had in Davis.....) What a mess.

I thought the Brewers were free swingers.  This team may actually have more guys that just flat out attack the ball and they've hammered every mistake Hughes has made.

That Dominguez has made some great plays at third, otherwise this game would look far different on the scoreboard.

We're in a BIG deficit now - down 5-0 heading to bottom of the 6th...

PS  I like TK, but not as an announcer.  Boring as anything.  Jack Morris > Tom Kelly

I honestly think that dead silence is more exciting that TK as an announcer.  Why Fox Sports North continues to to trot him out as a special guest analyst is beyond me.  I'm eternally grateful to him for helping the Twins win 2 World Series titles in the span of 5 years, but he really should not be placed within 100 miles of a microphone.

Bah---just like the Wings two nights ago, the big comeback falls one run short. Too little too late. Santana with his first HR; Hicks an incredible 2-2; Kubel now 0 for his last 26. He and Parmelee are playing themselves off the team after great Aprils. Hughes a rare off night.

I hate the Astros.
