Pennant Race Gazette 5/29/10

Two exciting pennant race games in Florida and Minnesota last night.  Philadelphia  won 3-2, to remain tied with Cincinnati, as a Chase Utley ground out scored the winning run.  Minnesota beat Texas 2-1 to take a .5 game lead.  Similar to how Philadelphia won,  Minnesota’s Joe Mauer won the game as his DP scored the winning run. It will be interesting to see if Florida can make up ground today as both teams pitch their aces.
