Good baseball

Baker pitches eight solid innings, new second baseman Alexi Casilla gets the game winning hit, Joe Nathan gets the save, Twins move within 4.5 games of first place and are now in the hunt for the Central Division title. If their starting pitchers get hot, look out!

However, I remain glum about their offense.

More bridge stuff

As I was driving over the Sorlie Bridge in Grand Forks last night, there was a whole fleet of fire trucks and an ambulance there, as well as spectators looking down. I looked down and saw a gurney loaded with what looked like a grimly-wrapped package, so I assumed the worst.

However, the woman who was pulled from the river by the crews was alive and has only minor injuries. So, that's good news.
