The Twins are two games above .500.
By: Christopher Torola
It may have taken until nine games before the All-Star break, but it has finally happened. On this day, July 1st of 2009, Glen Perkins took the mound for what, at first blush, seemed no different then any other afternoon get away game against a division rival; however, on this day there was to be something different. While scattering ten hits and one earned run over seven innings, Glen Perkins did something that Twins' pitchers had failed at eight times on the season... he won a game to get the team to two games over the five-hundred mark.
