Shaky bullpen? No problem. Scott Baker throws 9 innings and allows just 5 hits and 1 run against Texas. The Twins’ bats also showed up in a big way scoring 8 runs and everyone reached base once besides Rene Rivera. When first seeing the lineup 8 runs would have seemed difficult especially with all the injuries the Twins have had lately. In fact, only 4 of todays starters were starters when the season began. The last few wins by Minnesota has featured players stepping up at different points, however, this game it was spread throughout the lineup. Delmon Young and Brian Dinkelman both had 2 RBIs and Ben Revere continued his strong play since his call up by going 2 for 5 with 2 runs. At worse, the Twins have split the series with Texas and will hope to take the series tomorrow when they send Liriano to the mound against Matt Harrison.
