Continued: Pain of all kinds is making the rounds for Twins

Torii Hunter doubled, Alberto Callaspo hit an RBI single, and Russell Branyan tied it with a sacrifice fly — the first out of the inning.

Just five nights earlier, against Seattle, the Twins had taken a 7-4 lead into the eighth inning, only to lose 8-7 in 10.

After that game, with closer Matt Capps dealing with right forearm soreness, Gardenhire said he could no longer afford to turn to the righthander in the eighth inning.

Capps warmed up Friday, but Gardenhire said he was only available for a ninth-inning save situation.

So with the score tied 5-5, Hoey went back for the ninth. Peter Bourjos tripled, and Izturis hit the go-ahead single before Anderson turned to Phil Dumatrait. The journeyman lefthander got three outs, lowering his ERA to 2.08 and cementing his status as one of the team’s best setup men.
