Found June 24, 2012 on Fox Sports:
Josh Willingham hit a two-run homer in the ninth inning off shaky Cincinnati closer Aroldis Chapman, rallying the Minnesota Twins over the Reds 4-3 Sunday. Joe Mauer opened the ninth with a double off the left-field wall against Chapman (4-4). Willingham followed with his 15th homer of the season, a 438-foot drive into the second level in left field. In Chapman's previous outing, he gave up a game-ending, two-run homer to Asdrubal Cabrera in the 10th inning at Cleveland last Tuesday. Willingham's homer overcame Joey Votto's eighth-inning, two-run homer that had given the Reds a 3-2 lead.

The instrument still somehow belongs to Nelson. It's covered in Crayola-colored drawings she's been given...

Gardenhire: Scotty pitched his tail off today

Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said earlier this month that he's not a fan of interleague play because he doesn't like the fact that his pitchers have to swing a bat. But with left-hander Scott Diamond due up in the top of the 8th inning, Gardenhire let his starting pitcher swing away. The move made sense, as Diamond cruised through seven innings, allowing just one run to...

Is karma to blame for Aroldis Chapman's recent woes?
