--Defensive plays of the week--

#3- Delmon Young makes a sliding catch to end a shaky inning by Matt Guerrier and keep the Twins within reach. They wouldn't make up the ground, though, and wound up losing anyways.

#2- Joe Crede makes a diving stab towards the third base line and fires a strong throw over to Brendan Harris. It sails a little high, but Harris is able to come down on the bag in plenty of time for the out. [Inexplicably, this isn't a 'highlight' on, so I linked to the condensed game instead; it's at the 6:50 mark in the video.]

#1- Alexi Casilla makes one of his two awesome plays in the weekend series against the Royals. With two runners in scoring position and two outs, Casilla goes all-out to nab a Billy Butler grounder and save at least one run.

Oddball play of the week- Philip Humber, in a desperate attempt to get an out on a weakly hit grounder, tosses the ball to third base without looking. Unfortunately, the base and Omar Vizquel are the only things in the vicinity as Joe Crede had charged to field it himself. Vizquel scores easily as the ball rolls into foul territory. [Also no individual video, at 1:00 mark of recap.]
