Way to Go, Buddies!

WeeeeeeDenard Span, batting leadoff and filling in for the injured Michael Cuddyer in the Minnesota Twins' right field, hit his first big league home run Monday night in the club's 7-0 lashing of the rival Chicago White Sox.

Span, who's batting .318 with a .405 OBP in just 35 games, nailed a two-run shot in the third inning to go along with Justin Morneau's 4 RBIs which gave youngster Kevin Slowey a hefty lead to work with. The 24-year-old righty, never allowing more than one man on base in any inning, struck out five and walked one to help the Twins move within 1.5 games of the division-leading South-Siders.

With six more games left in the season between these two teams -- all at the Dome -- things could get interesting in the race for first in the AL Central.

He's 8-1 at home with a 3.91 ERA this season, so I'll take my chances. Let's just forget the 7-run, 8-hit blunder that was his last outing against the White Sox...

Dammit, I knew I should have saved my insightful "GO TWINS! WOOO!" commentary for the appropriate post. In that vein...
