Twins 11 Indians 0

Scott Baker threw a two-hitter. Jason Kubel drove in five funs. Joe Mauer went 3 for 3 with two walks. And the Twins won big.

We were in the front row over the dugout. When Joe Mauer put on his catcher's gear, he was five feet below. You heard it hear first: The great Mauer has several gray hairs!

The highlight of the game was an argument between Cleveland manager Eric Wedge and the home plate ump after the ump consulted with his fellow umpires and reversed a call he had made to strike out Justin Morneau. Morneau was called back to the plate.
