Devoured by the Demon: Twins 2, Yanks 0

Just a short one, today.

As you've probably heard, the Yanks fell before Johan Santana last night, extending the Demon's amazing run of hot pitching, which dates back to June. Santana wasn't dominant last night, but succeeding under less-than-perfect conditions is the mark of a great pitcher.

My real-time observations, following the game by computer, can be found at the Page O' Stuff.

The Lou Gehrig of Yankee bloggers, Alex Belth, was at the game. You can read what he thought at Bronx Banter.

Over at Will Carroll Presents..., Twins Fan Dan took over the blog with minute-by-minute analysis. Just take the general link to Will's blog, since TFD's contribution spans many, many posts.

As for tonight, it's what lots of people have marked the crucial moment of this best-of-five series: Brad Radke vs. Jon Lieber. Radke's been lights-out in the second half, but there's some history with the Yanks.

I'll be there tonight, Section 6, Row T of the Upper Deck. If you're in the neighborhood, drop on by.
