The pitchers

Nick Bierbrodt

Bierbrodt (1-2, 4.76) struck out seven in seven scoreless innings against the Twins on Monday for his first win since being traded from Arizona. He allowed two hits and walked three.

Kyle Lohse

Lohse (3-5, 5.74) has allowed four or more runs in six of his 11 starts this season. He gave up four runs on nine hits in 51/3 innings against the Rays on Monday.

You don't say

During a discussion about becoming a better hitter before Friday's game against Minnesota, Rays manager Hal McRae engaged in a bit of philosophy. "If you think there's a problem, you try to rectify it. That's not only here, that's in real life. We adjust. If it's raining you get an umbrella. If the sun's shining in your eyes when you're driving, you put your visor down."
