    Royals terrorized by Twins!

    Twins win big against division leading Kansas City Royals. In what looked to be a disaster for Twins' fans in the top of the 1st turned out to be a miracle in the bottom inning as the Twins blasted in 5 runs. Francisco Liriano had to leave the game after just 0.2 innings of work. Grabbing his arm resulted in the yanking of the Twins' ace. However, Pat Neshek, the submariner would do wonders on the K.C. batters going 4.0 innings getting 3 K's and 2 hits. Jason Kubel went 4-5 with a double and 3 RBI's. Michael Cuddyer and Justin Morneau added fuel to the fire with 2 HR's. The Twins will look to take the series hopefully and go up 2 games in a tight race in the AL Central division.

    O's break Tigers heart in bottom of 9th

    David Hernandez made his season debut with the injury to Brad Bergesen. Things started out a little shaky for Hernandez as he gave up consecutive hits to Johnny Damon and Magglio Ordonez. The cycle would repeat it self in the top of the 6th, as the Tigers plated 2 more to take a 3-0 lead.

    Max Schrezer was pitching a gem of a game, giving up 7 hits but not allowing any of them to cross the plate. But things took a turn for the worst in the bottom of the 9th. After a leadoff single by Nick Markakis, Miguel Tejada hit a ball in deep left-center field that was tracked by Damon. With the hit-and-run in play, Markakis was caught dead on the basepaths as he was doubled off first base.

    With 2 outs, Luke Scott stepped up the plate and deposited a low fast ball over the right field way. Next up was Ty Wigington singled up the middle to bring Nolan Reimold to the plate as the tying run. Reimold took an inside fastball from Valverde and hit the left center gap. With the runners holding at 2nd and 3rd, up came rookie Rhyne Hughes. On an 1-0 pitch, Hughes found his pitch and blasted a 3 Run HR to win the game and put his Orioles into 1st place after a dismal 0-4 start to the season.

    The Orioles now are 5-5 and face interleague play against the Florida Marlins next.
