Josh Hamilton and Albert Pujols each drove in 4 runs. Jeremy Hermedia hit a pair of HRs.
Chien-Ming Wang threwa complete game two-hitter. He allowed just 1 run while striking out 3. Clay Buchholz pitched well allowing 1 run in 6 innings.

Tim Hudson fired 8 shutout innings allowing just 3 hits with 5 Ks. Matt Chico did his best to match (8 innings, 1 run, 3 Ks), but came up short. Livan Hernandez improved to 3-0 following 7 shutout innings for the Twins. Brandon Webb went 8 innings allowing 2 runs on 4 hits with 6 Ks.
