GameChat – Twins @ Royals #3, 7:10pm

Anyone else really nervous about Blackburn’s return tonight? I think it’s a bit rushed.. No clue if he’s really ready to be back. And I LIKE Blackburn!

That’s another series win, folks!

Liriano gives up 1 run in five innings last night and Blackburn follows that up with a five inning-two run effort tonight. Once again the bullpen was outstanding and tonight, the offense provided a bit more support than they gave Frankie last night. The result was a 4-2 win.

You won’t see it in the boxscore, but Alexi Casilla was impressive with the glove tonight. It’s time we rewarded some defense and tonight we’ll do just that… Lexi, you are our Boyfriend of the Day!
