The Twins finally score, ending their 25 inning scoreless streak and, hey, they ended up getting a win too. Pavano went 6 solid innings giving up only 2 runs on 8 hits and the bullpen came in and did their job holding the Mariners with dominating efforts by Perkins and Capps. Yes I said Capps. He appears to have developed a slider and split finger and had command of them last night. He even zipped a fast ball in at 94 mph. Watch out!
Offensively it was still ugly with the Twins taking advantage of Mariner walks and miscues. The biggest hit was a seeing eye single up the middle for Joe Mauer which gave us the lead But I can't complain...a win is a win and the Twins, desperate for hits and runs lately, will take it. It's game 2 of the 3 against Seattle tonight at 8:10 with Jason Marquis (2-0 with a 6.23 era and 7 K's) taking the hill against Felix Hernandez (2-1 with a 2.23 era and 42 K's).
