Santana does it again

Whoa, what a fun game today. Santana was on, as ever. He just doesn't lose. He was furious with the home plate umpire for his restricted strike zone and took it out on the batters. When he became obviously miffed, he suddenly struck out six consecutive batters.

Now, the Twins find themselves only two games out of first place, the closest they have been since mid-April. Liriano comes back next week. Mauer's bat is waking up. Bonser is coming around. Things are looking pretty good.
