Friday, April 11th
Carlos Pena
brought the pain Friday night with 2 HR & 6 RBI.  Bobby Crosby, B.J. Upton, Nathan Haynes, Vernon Wells, Mike Jacobs, Matt Tolbert, Raul Ibanez (including a pair of HRs), Kevin Kouzmanoff, Rafael Furcal, Juan Pierre, and Skip Schumaker each had three hits.  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.  Nelson Figueroa allowed 2 runs in 6 inning while collecting 6 Ks.  Neither factored into the decision, but Cincy’s Edison Volquez (5 innings) and Paul Maholm (5-1/3) kept the scoreboard blank in their duty.  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.
