Brian Duensing 3-Hits the A's

Athletics @ Twins - Saturday, August 14, 2010

(via fangraphs)

I have to make this quick, as I apparently have only intermittent internet access until my ISP gets its act together. Brian Duensing put forth one of the best performances by a Twins’ starter all year, a three-hit masterpiece against Oakland. He struck out just four and walked two, but silenced the Athletics’ bats for nine innings. Granted, Oakland doesn’t have the greatest offense in the league, but who cares? Certainly not game score, which gives the Dunce’s performance an 83. It’s tied with Francisco Liriano for the second-best performance by a Minnesota starter this year, with both Scott Baker and Carl Pavano tossing 84s.

Also, the White Sox lost to the Tigers, so the Twins are now leading the AL Central by two games.  Don’t stop now, boys.
