Milone allowed one run on five hits, walking two and striking out five over seven innings of a 5-3 victory against the Orioles on Wednesday afternoon.

Milone (5-1, 2.84 ERA) solidified his claim on a rotation spot with another solid performance. With Ervin Santana now back from his suspension, the Twins had a decision to make, and they opted to move Trevor May to the bullpen, leaving Milone in the rotation. This outing should guarantee that he will take a regular turn every five days for the foreseeable future.

Milone will remain in the Twins' rotation, taking the mound Wednesday versus the Orioles, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Following the activation of Ervin Santana on Saturday, manager Paul Molitor had to decide whether to keep Milone or Trevor May in the rotation. Ultimately, Milone won out, likely on the backs of five consecutive quality starts. During that stretch, Milone posted a 2-0 record, 1.69 ERA, 1.03 WHIP, and 27:8 K:BB in 32 innings.

Milone gave up one run with five strikeouts and two walks over six innings, but got a no-decision in Friday's loss to Kansas City.

Milone's strong outing comes at a good time as the Twins will eventually drop either him or Trevor May from the rotation when Ervin Santana returns Sunday from a suspension. It's not clear how the Twins will re-work their rotation as they could keep six starters until the All Star break.

Milone (4-1) scattered 10 hits in a win Monday over the White Sox, as he allowed two runs in six innings with two strikeouts and two walks.

Milone limited the damage by keeping the ball in front of the outfielders, as just two of the 10 hits were extra-base hits, and both of those were doubles. Milone is playing with fire, though, as he isn't missing bats (5.3 K/9) and his mid-80s fastball is ripe for home runs (1.5 HR/9). That's usually a bad combination, but Milone has proven solid at hitting his spots in the past, as he has a 3.96 ERA in 532 innings. don't expect the strikeouts to show up, though -- his career high MLB K/9 is 6.5, even though he struck out over a batter per inning in Triple-A.

Milone (3-1) allowed only five hits and one run in seven innings against the Cardinals on Wednesday. He struck out five.

Milone won for the first time in five games and has now lowered his ERA to 3.67. He's now pitched past the sixth inning in back to back starts after having done so only two times in his six previous starts. Milone will look to keep it going in his next scheduled start Monday against the White Sox.

Milone (2-1) threw seven strong innings in a no-decision at Texas on Friday, allowing two runs on just three hits and one walk, while striking out eight.

Friday's start marks just the second time in six tries this season that Milone pitched past the sixth inning. The eight strikeouts were a pleasant surprise for a pitcher who came into the game with a paltry 4.23 K/9, and owners can only hope Milone keeps the good times rolling against the Cardinals on Wednesday.
