Shucks - Mauer whiffs with runners in scoring position and 2 outs.  Hats off to Smiley, who definitely attacked Mauer.

And Cabrera rips a Diamond mistake into left field for a hit... 1-2 for him.

Showing why he's our ace this year - making very good pitches, especially when needed. 

5 solid innings, only 60 pitches.

Haha - wow!  You don't see THAT everyday!  Ben Revere GUNNED down Cabrera at the plate, keeping this game knotted at zeros!  biggrin

Nice to see Doumit make the Tigers (and Prince Fielder) pay DEARLY for that error.  However, Leyland makes a big mistake not reaching for a warmed up Dotel.  Coke is simply getting destroyed vs. righties.

Doumit the hitting star tonight - has 2 of our 4 hits and all 4 rbi's. 

Winning time...

While I certainly want the Twins to win every game possible and relish them playing the role of the spoiler, I sure wish the White Sox would keep losing because I really don't want to see them in the postseason.

Diamond once again shows that he just might have staying power in this rotation beyond this year.

I want the White Sox to beat Tampa--being an Orioles fan too. O's play them 3 times to end the season and I want the Rays to be 4 behind the O's when that series starts!! The Rays have gotten hot, so I'm glad the PaleHose cooled them down a bit.

I feel bad that Diamond didn't get a win for his efforts tonite. I think we can safely say he was our best starting pitcher in 2012..and a surprise at that.

Also too bad that Joe didn't get any hits while Cabs got one. I still hold out hope that Joe can get this done.

From my perspective I would rather take my chances playing the Sox in the playoffs rather than Detroit. As uneven as the Tigers have been this year, they are still potentially loaded and they have Verlander. Short series favors them.
The Sox OTOH have surprisingly hit a ton of HR's this season. And they, like the O's and A's weren't supposed to contend at all. In fact several baseball 'experts' picked the Sox to finish behind the Twins or even the Native Americans.

In conclusion: A Twins win is always nice.

This I may have to see to believe, but then again it was Cabrera tongue
 Meyer and May will be top of the rotation starters by 2015.

I hope that we beat up on Detroit this series. I hate the Sox, but I'd almost rather see them win the division just because of all the hype the Tigers got going into the year and about how good they would be and how many games they would win.

My sentiments EXACTLY.  Screw the Tigers... hope we destroy them.

I definitely want to see the Twins win every game, but I do hate the White Sox more than the Tigers, so if the Twins absolutely have to lose,  I'd just assume see Chicago suffer for it.
