It is a sad state of affairs when a sweep of the Royals have Twins’ fans excited. Duensing managed 8 scoreless innings and had Matt Capps come in the 9th to complete the shutout. Jason Repko was the standout performer collecting half of the Twins’ RBIs with another 2 coming from Matt Tolbert. This has been the M.O. against the Royals this series; strong pitching and unlikely performers. I am sure at this point Gardy is taking whatever he can get. The Twins will now head to Cleveland to take on the team with the American League’s best record and current AL Central leader Indians. The 3 game series will mark the end of a 10 game road trip and then the Twins will return home to face off against the hard-hitting Texans. Lets hope some of the young Twins players can carry some of this confidence against the Royals into Cleveland and manage a 6-4 road trip.

He has strung together a few strong games, including today, and lets hope it becomes more of a norm for him.
