• White Sox vs. Twins, 06/26/2012, 7:10pm

    Twins fans couldn't have asked for a better game than last night. Peavy was hit early and often while Liriano continued his streak of dominant pitching on the way to a 4-1 win in a performance that felt far more dominating than the score showed at the end of the night. Powered by nine (!) hits from the top third of the lineup, the Twins look to repeat last night's performance against a struggling Gavin Floyd. Unfortunately, Liam Hendriks has been even worse since his call-up from AAA, where he dominated International League hitters for seven starts earlier in the season. It looks to be a high scoring affair tonight; be sure to catch all the discussion on the Twins Daily game thread found below!

      I think he was expecting it to carom back into the field, and it didn't. It hit the back wall and died.

      So far he seems to be doing pretty well. I share your hope for his success.

      Mauer is coming up big today against Floyd. Goes to show how past performances don't really mean much in baseball.

      What was that prediction on Mauer again?
