Just enough offense

Danny Valencia and Luke Hughes celebrate Valencia's
game-winning broken-bat single, and former Twin
Orlando Cabrera heads for the clubhouse,
jersey already untucked.
Should the Twins complete their rise from their April-May ash heap, should they overcome what was a 16.5 game deficit and win their third straight AL Central title, Tuesday night may well be remembered as a turning point.

In the space of four batters (and without a single well-hit ball)  the Twins turned a 1-0 loss into a 2-1 win.

Which, I suppose, makes up for Friday's Matt Capps blown-save loss, a 1-0 game turned into a 2-1 defeat for the Twins.

The "W" doesn't obscure, however, this reality: The Twins, other than Joe Mauer, aren't hitting. They have netted a total of 16 runs in their last six games.
