The stars nearly aligned for Dereck Rodriguez -- son of the former 14-time All-Star catcher, Ivan 'Pudge' Rodriguez -- on Monday night. With his dad in the crowd, the Elizabethton hurler did not allow Bristol a hit until giving up a single with one out in the seventh. ...

After falling behind by eight runs after just three innings, it would've been easy for the Twins to roll over against the Reds on Monday night at Great American Ball Park.

Location issues lead to Pelfrey's rough outing

Twins' streaking bullpen hits speedbump
Handing a 1-0 lead to his bullpen in the seventh inning hasn't caused Twins' manager Paul Molitor to worry of late. That changed on Sunday as both Blaine Boyer and Casey Fien weren't able to lock down the win for Minnesota, ultimately losing 5-3 to the Brewers at Miller Park. ...
