Loss Extends Minnesota Losing Streak
The St. Louis Cardinals did just enough to sneak past the Minnesota Twins, 5-4, at Target Field. St. Louis pitcher Rubby de la Rosa earned player of the game honors. The winning pitcher was de la Rosa, now 2-1. He tossed 5 innings of 4-hit ball, while walking 5 and fanning 5. The losses continue to mount for Minnesota, which has now dropped 7 in a row.

Allen Jacobs aided the St. Louis cause with a run-scoring single in the top of the seventh. For the game, the designated hitter went 2 for 4 with 2 singles and a walk, while adding 2 RBI.

"I like the grit of this ballclub," de la Rosa said.
