Ok, so it may be obvious that Jason Tyner is not a long-term solution in the OF. But I'm certainly not complaining about him being up here.
All Tyner did in his first day up from AAA after Lew Ford was placed on the DL was go 2/5, get 2 RBI, and hit the game-winning single in the bottom of the 10th. Tyner hasn't exactly been a star in his career, but for one night at least, he was the hero for the Twins.
Of course, much credit deserves to go to Brad Radke and the bullpen, who held the potent Cleveland offense to 2 run in the 10 innings. Brad Radke pitched very well for 7 innings, allowing only 2 runs on a HR by Jason Michaels. This finally brings the ERA down under 5, but more importantly he just threw the ball really well, and I don't think anyone will complain if we see more outings like this.
In the pen, Juan Rincon continued his sterling year with 1.1 scoreless innings, then Reyes came on to finish the 9th, and Joe Nathan pitched a shutout 10th to lower the ERA to 1.70 and improve his record to a perfect 6-0.
For other cool Twins stuff that doesn't relate to the game, check out Seth Speaks for a really cool interview with Twins prospect Kevin Slowey, who I declared the Twins best Minor League Pitcher of the First Half. Always great to get a feel for the young guys coming up!
