Kevin Correia

First To 30
Chicago manager Robin Ventura is no longer surprised when Jose Abreu hits a long home run or does something else spectacular. Abreu hit his major league-leading 30th homer and drove in three runs, leading the White Sox past the Minnesota Twins 9-5 on Friday night.
Familiar Story
It wasn't always pretty, but considering the position they've put themselves in this year, the Tampa Bay Rays can't be too picky. James Loney had two hits and two RBIs and Chris Archer won consecutive decisions for the first time this season as the Rays won their fifth straight with a 5-3 victory against the Minnesota Twins on Sunday.
Rock Solid
Some run support at long last made all the difference for Kevin Correia. Correia pitched six innings of one-run ball, Eduardo Escobar homered, and the Minnesota Twins pulled away late to beat the Colorado Rockies 9-3 on Saturday.
No Support
Hisashi Iwakuma is back on track, and that should create a serious concern for the rest of the American League. Iwakuma struck out a season-high 10 in seven strong innings, Mike Zunino and Michael Saunders hit solo home runs, and the Seattle Mariners beat the Minnesota Twins 2-0 on Monday night.
Twins Bats Go Cold
The Kansas City Royals have played well away from home. They're consistently capable of winning with only a couple of runs. If they can keep this up for the summer, they'll probably be right there in the pennant race at the end.
Tumbling Twins
Minnesota left fielder Josh Willingham made a diving attempt at a sinking line drive. A couple of batters later, he was chasing down a deep fly ball when he ran into the outfield wall.
Out Of The Basement
The fastball flew past Adam Dunn's bat at 95 miles per hour to end the game, and Glen Perkins pivoted on the mound to give his left arm an exaggerated pump. Perkins and the Minnesota Twins survived another tenuous ninth inning by their normally dominant closer to beat the Chicago White Sox again in dramatic fashion.
Correia Wins
Kevin Correia felt he'd been burned by bad fortune too many times this season. His luck changed on a pivotal play against the Blue Jays. Brian Dozier hit a two-run home run, Correia won for the first time in four starts and the Minnesota Twins beat Toronto 4-0 on Tuesday night.
