Marquis Needs To Atone For This Outing

Batting 6th, Danny Valencia was 2-3 with 1 BB, 1 HR (his 3rd), 1 RBI, and 1 run scored against the A's.

Batting 3rd, Ryan Braun was 3-5 with 2 doubles (his 39th and 40th) and 2 runs scored against the Giants. Braun's 40 doubles this season are a career-high for him.

Batting 5th, Ike Davis was 0-3 with 1 BB and 1 run scored against the Braves.

Batting 6th, Ian Kinsler was 0-3 against the Mariners.

Sam Fuld was used as a late inning defensive replacement in left field against the Marlins.

Craig Breslow picked up his 16th hold of the year. He pitched 1 1/3 scoreless innings on 1 BB against the Twins.

Jason Marquis picked up his 9th loss of the year, and deservedly so. He lasted just 1/3 of an inning and gave up 6 runs on 6 hits, 1 BB, and 0 Ks against the Phillies.

Brutal outing for Marquis. Valencia might just put the Twins over the top this year. In past post seasons, the Twins were hampered by Punto. That's not a problem any more. Valencia is really, really good.
