Game 152: Twins 5, Indians 1


Nick Blackburn continued his mastery of the Indians, allowing one run on hits over seven innings. He faced the Indians 11 days ago, throwing eight shutout innings on five hits and two walks, so it wasn't like the Indians were unfamiliar with him. He's fighting for a rotation spot in the playoffs, and his two starts against the Indians this month may put him over the top.

Carlos Carrasco had another solid start, allowing three runs in six innings of work. Aaron Laffey, who has been a no-show this season, gave up two runs in his lone inning of work, not helping his chances of making next year's club. He, along with Matt LaPorta, has to the be the most disappointing young player on the roster given the expectations coming into the season.
