Danny Valencia: Spared the bus tires for a night!

This team has one no hitter this year and now a one hitter, and our offense has 2 whole runs to show in those 19 innings. That's the problem with this team, they waste strong pitching with no offense and they waste strong offense with no pitching! I wish these guys could find a way to fire on all cylinders once in a while.

I got nervous when they jumped in a pile to celebrate! This is a very fragile team and injuries are common.

But if the Angels had won, there would already be 100 comments here about "Fire Gardenhire and Smith!". Bandwagon "fans".

Who woulda thought the one lone gunman in the bullpen stuns with 7.1 innings of no hits against the halos, the real shocker is when Capps finally delivered a "true save"

A big win for the Twins tonight. And there'll be plenty more where that one came from.

Nice job Swarzak. Sounds like he is a guy who really wants to show he belongs.

AllenJL84 - this win is hardly going to save the season. there are still a lot of isssues with the team. like someone said elsewhere - if we weren't upset with the state of the team the way it is, we really wouldn't be fans.

Best game so far! It is so inspiring to see a young man with little success to date perform as he did tonight.
