Twins' ball goes stratospheric -- for science

MINNEAPOLIS Minnesota Twins sluggers Justin Morneau and Josh Willingham have combined to hit 53 home runs this season, so they know a thing or two about sending a baseball out of the park.

Twins' Diamond looking for lost luster

MINNEAPOLIS Despite beginning the year at Triple-A Rochester, Minnesota left-hander Scott Diamond has pitched the most innings of any Twins pitcher this season.

Deduno was all over the place...
