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.

Halleluah! Perkins pitched a great game. Its also nice to see that Cuddyer is finally putting in some offense for a change. Now if Liriano can keep up his upswing in pitching and Baker can find his groove, things could get quite interesting in the Central Division once again. I sure hope they keep this up after the All-Star break and win out most of their series. They have a tough road ahead of them though. Especially since most of their games are on the road, where they have been slacking for quite some time.
