  1. The Twins ended Ichiro's hitting streak last night holding him to 0/4 with a walk. He nearly beat out an infield hit in the 5th but Alexi Casilla made a nice play to edge him at first. Joe Nathan struck him out to end the game in the 10th.

    The Twins were also responsible for ending Ellsbury's streak at 22 last month.
