By ANDREW GRUMAN FoxSportsWisconsin.com MILWAUKEE -- In the grand scheme of things, Kevin Correia's start was very ordinary. Three runs in six innings is defined as a quality start, but usually isn't described as anything more than average. But the way the starting rotation has pitched for the Minnesota Twins, Correia's outing Monday in Milwaukee was much needed. Giving the Twins just their second quality start since May 17, Correia helped the Twins win the first of four straight games against the Brewers, 6-3, at Miller Park. "A good performance," Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said. "They got close to us and we added on a couple of big ones. Nice win for us. Bullpen did a good job." Early on, it appeared as if Gardenhire was going to have to go to the bullpen early again.

Twins Sunday: Ramirez put on 7-day DL

Grading the Twins roster moves of the past 2 weeks

The Twins have made severa; roster moves in the midst of a panic inducing plummet through the standings while on a 10 game winning streak. Which moves were the best? Which were the worst? Let’s rate them! Sending Pedro Hernandez to Rochester: Hernandez, more or less, was a place holder until he started to falter. Nobody expected him to do much better than he did, I don’t think...

Twins' rookie Colabello victim of jersey blunder

Chris Colabellos journey from the independent leagues to the major leagues is an inspiring one, but the Twins newcomer made a rookie mistake Tuesday in Milwaukee. The 29-year-old Colabello entered the game against the Brewers as a pinch hitter in the top of the ninth inning, replacing pitcher Jared Burton. Only one problem for Colabello, though: he was wearing the wrong jersey....

Extra-innings win may be turning point for Hicks

Plenty of things happened in Minnesota's 6-5 win in a marathon 14-inning game in Milwaukee. Rookie Aaron Hicks produced some of the most memorable moments. Hicks robbed Brewers outfielder (and former Twin) Carlos Gomez of a home run, hit one a few innings later and crossed home plate to score the eventual game-winning run in the top of the 14th inning. After Minnesota took...

Struggling Twins look for boost from interleague matchup

Twins' Raminrez to 7-day DL with concussion like symptoms

More bad news for the Minnesota Twins, as outfielder Wilkin Ramirez' initial diagnosis of a sore jaw after colliding with teammate Josh Willingham during Saturday's win against the Detroit Tigers has been re-diagnosed as concussion-like symptoms.

Minnesota Twins news and notes

Some Minnesota Twins news and notes: To put Chris Colabello’s feat into proper perspective one must realize he is only the 38th player in the 21 seasons since Independent Baseball started up to break into the professional game at the non-affiliated level and climb all the way the major leagues. But not a single one of the 37 before Colabello, who got his long-awaited chance Wednesday...

First Pitch: Jeanmar Gomez is the New Kevin Correia

I’m what you call a cord cutter. I don’t have cable or DirecTV. A few years ago I discovered that all of the shows I watch were either on Netflix, or on Hulu Plus the next day. And since I never watched shows the night they aired, the “next day” part of Hulu didn’t matter to me. So I was faced with paying $15 per month for Netflix and Hulu, or paying over $100 more per...
