Late night: Twins 8, Tigers 6

Joe Mauer had a homer, double and single Tuesday night.

Game story here.

Just another game for Joe Mauer: 3-for-5, seven total bases, three runs scored. His slash line is now .332/.420/.464.

But Nick Blackburn was terrible again — a four inning, six-run start that again taxed the bullpen. Blackburn's ERA is now 8.10.

The Twins have been far more patient with Blackburn than they were with Francisco Liriano or Liam Hendricks. I don't know how much more patient they will be.

  1. Release Blackburn, eat his contract, and give the ball to Hendricks every fifth until he pitches worse.
