Alexi Casilla’s two run single scored Brendan Harris and Brian Buscher to put the cherry on top of the comeback, and win 6-5.  Twins will try to use the momentum of Tuesday’s win to carry them Wednesday.  It’s game three of four against Seattle.  Gametime is at 7:10 p.m. on Cool Country 100.9 WCMP-FM.

The Milwaukee Brewers are still searching for their first win.  They kick off their 2009 campaign with a 10-6 loss to the Giants, despite a poor performance from San Francisco’s ace Tim Lincecum.  The loss ends a five year opening day win streak for the Brew Crew.  Milwaukee takes on the Giants and Randy Johnson tonight at 915 p.m.

Big win on the ice for the Wild, who keep their playoff dreams alive by dropping Dallas 3-1 at the Xcel Energy Center.  Minnesota closed within a point of Nashville in the race for the eighth spot in the west, but a St. Louis win over Phoenix puts the wild three points back with just two games remaining.  Minnesota has to win its next two games to stay alive. They host Nashville Friday.

T-wolves get their 23rd win on the year beating the L.A. Clippers in 87-77 in a match-up of two teams heading to the NBA lottery.  Ryan Gomes was the stud of the night with 24 points and 13 rebounds.  Rookie Kevin Love snagged 15 boards and chipped in 13 points in the win.

The Connecticut Lady Huskies are perfect.  They finish their undefeated season with a 76-54 win over Louisville in Tuesday’s title game.
