Slowey, Twins Open Series On A Good Note

Kevin Slowey had one of his best outings – if not, his best outing – of the season, and the Minnesota Twins beat another team in playoff position for the second straight night.

The Twins followed up Thursday’s win against the New York Yankees by holding on for a 2-1 victory Friday against the AL West-leading Texas Rangers.

It was nice to see Slowey pitch the way he did. The way Target Field has played, I would think a guy like him could have some success there, since lefties have such a tough time hitting homers there.

I really like the Rangers this year, which is why I picked them to win the West (many of my preseason picks aren’t looking so hot, but that one is). Holding that lineup down is no easy task.
