Zach Duke (LHP) (7-4, 3.10 ERA, 47 K) @ Nick Blackburn (RHP) (5-2, 3.31 ERA, 37 K)

1:10 P.M. EST @ Metrodome

Post Game Update
Nick Blackburn pitch a complete game 6 hitter, allowing just 1 run to Pirate hitters. That run was after-the-fact… down 5-0 with 2 outs in the bottom of the ninth.

Zach Duke pitched fair, allowing 3 runs in 6 innings. Chavez allowed 2 more in 2 innings, but Blackburn was the story of the night.

It feels good to be leaving Minnesota.
