At 25-29 the Twins have sneaked their way into 3rd place in the Central. They currently stand at a full game ahead of the White Sox and 4 games behind the 2nd place Indians. I had predicted they would grab 3rd by the All-Star break, but now they're working ahead of that.
It has been beneficial that they are facing bottom feeder teams, but hey, you need to take care of business against those teams and the Twins are certainly doing that.
The Twins are 7-3 in the last 10 games and have won 6 out of their last 7. Also good news, they've improved their previously ailing home record to 13-14. It's nice to see Target field being somewhat of an advantage for them as they've been knocking a lot out of the park.
Rookie Aaron Hicks has been a spark they've needed on offense. During the last 7 games, he's hitting .286 with 2 homers, a triple, and a handful of spectacular defensive catches.
Scott Diamond improved his record to 4-4...

MINNEAPOLIS Chris Herrmann couldn't stop smiling as he rounded the bases Sunday in the fourth inning. And who could blame him.
Herrmann hit his first career major league home run in Sunday's 10-0 over the Seattle Mariners. Herrmann drove a 1-2 pitch from Jeremy Bonderman to left field for an estimated 373-foot homer.
The emotion on Herrmann's face following the home...
