The Twins have won eight times this season scoring three or fewer runs, including once in each city of their just-completed 10-game road trip. They had six such victories all of last season.


For all this talk on the No. 1 overall pick, we haven't had a chance to mention Delmon Young, taken first by Tampa Bay in 2003.
