Interleague mastery

The National League does not like to see Joe Nathan on the mound.  Dating back to 2005, the Twins have won 31 straight interleague games when Nathan has pitched.

Nathan entered the Twins vs. Cardinals game tonight in the ninth inning with a two run lead.  After giving up a lead-off double to Colby Rasmus, Nathan struck out Albert Pujols and retired Ludwick and Ankiel to end the game.

The save was Nathan’s 18th of the year.
