Twins 5 Seattle 1

Notice I rarely write about the Twins when they lose. Tonight was a classic Santana win. Nine strikeouts. Seven innings. One run. Santana to Rincon to Nathan. Seems like two years ago.

This team's been asleep. Last night they were booting the ball all over the infield. This losing streak is clearly a psychological problem. In an attempt to fire up the team, Gardenhire got kicked out for kicking his hat, but that's old hat.

Tonight, they showed a little fire. If they put six wins together in a row, I'll start to believe they are snapping out of it.
