Sometimes it's best just to cede the stage to your superiors.

Big Al, in a tweet:

Well that sucked.


The Twins hit Armando Galarraga early and often -- especially Denard Span, who opened the game with a triple. Then he hit another off Galarraga. Then yet another off Fu-Te Ni in the fifth inning. Four at-bats, three triples and a single. Wow.

So Galarraga didn't make it out of the fifth; Ni didn't make it out of the fifth and the game was over by the end of ... the six. No, just kidding. The fifth, when the Twins led 10-3.

If you're looking for something positive to take away from the game, Johnny Damon had two hits and two RBI. He's been slumping for half of June so maybe that will get him started back in the right direction.

And that's about it. First-place is on the line again in the afternoon as the teams wrap up the series.
