Twins Take Two v. Toronto

This inter-divisional match-up featured two gems and one disaster by Twins starters. The Twins feature one of the best one-two combos in Walter Johnson and Johan Santana, and those two maestros had the Blue Jays eating out of their hands in the first two games, especially the shutout with 13 Ks by Santana. The Twins three, four, and five starters are not nearly as fierce, and the Toronto sluggers unloaded their frustrations on Camilo Pascual to the tune of three homers and seven runs before Pascual was lifted after recording just six outs. Firpo Marberry hurled five scoreless innings in relief of Pascual, which had little effect on the outcome, but it did drop Firpo’s ERA to a league-best 0.63.
