Boof Update

The Twins clinched a playoff spot behind Boof Bonser. See Boof Bonser Is My Hero for why I'm posting this. From Sportsline:

Joe Mauer, Jason Tyner and Nick Punto hit RBI singles in support of Bonser, who is 4-0 with a 2.20 ERA in his last five starts -- probably cementing his spot in the playoff rotation.

"Hopefully this is just the start of what we can do," said Bonser, who gave up a just-barely homer to Angel Berroa over the left-field wall in the sixth and a leadoff double to Emil Brown in the fifth, striking out five and walking two over 6 2/3 innings.

Bonser left to a loud serenade, "Booooof!" as Dennys Reyes took over for the last out of the seventh.

"Everything is finally coming through," Bonser said. "I can't say it's just me, because it's the guys behind me. They're hitting the ball and playing defense. That's it right there. It's all about the Twins. It's not just one guy. It's everybody."
