I said the Twins should have brought in Matt Guerrier (well, realistically Jon Rauch) for the 9th, and sadly I was correct on that one. Still, Blackburn tossed a complete game and lowered his ERA almost a run in the win.

JJ Hardy is good at shortstop and wild pitches are fun.

Best hitter: JJ Hardy (+.440)

Worst hitter: Wilson Ramos (-.123)

Pitcher: Nick Blackburn (+.206)

Most important play: Brennan Boesch homer (-.324)
