The Twins defeated the Orioles 5-0 today thanks to the work of Kevin Slowey and newly rich Nick Blackburn. Slowey threw three scoreless innings, which were followed by three scoreless by Blackburn. Each pitcher struck out two and walked one.
At the plate the Twins were led by Michael Cuddyer, who went 2 for 3 with 2 RBI. Ben Revere, who you will eventually see in my prospect rankings, went 3-5 with a triple.
Brian Matusz got the loss for Baltimore, tossing 2.2 innings, giving up 2 runs on 3 hits. Although he did strikeout 6 hitters.
The Twins are back at it tomorrow vs. St Louis.
Later today I’ll unveil my next prospect.
