MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Returning home from a five-game road trip wasn’t enough for the Minnesota Twins to revive their offense in a 7-2 loss to the Texas Rangers on Monday.
Kevin Correia allowed four earned runs in seven innings for the Twins in their fourth straight loss since climbing two games over .500 on May 21.
“Another day where offensively we didn’t get it done again,” Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said. “Baseball does that. You go in cycles, hit some bloops, get some to fall in. Starting hitting them hard at people and you go into a little bit of a funk.”
Trevor Plouffe homered and Eduardo Escobar had two hits and an RBI for the Twins, who have scored just eight runs in their previous five games.
