Oakland 3, Minnesota 2

August 19, 2008

Nothing like falling out of first place because you let the team with the worst record in baseball since the All-Star break come into your home ballpark and win despite losing its starting pitcher to injury in the third inning and replacing him with a guy who has been in Triple-A since mid-April. 

Joe Mauer played well, but its looking more and more like the Twins might actually need help from someone besides Mauer to keep the magic going.
