Minnesota starter Trevor May overcame being bombarded by tiny insects on the mound.
The Minnesota Twins will open their season on the road with a three-game stand against the Detroit Tigers followed by three games against the Chicago White Sox. The games against the Tigers will be played on April 6, 8 and 9, and the White Sox series is scheduled for April 10-12.
At the end of their penultimate home stand, the Minnesota Twins left the friendly confines of Target Field with a record of 61-82. With only 19 games remaining in the season, it seems fairly well assured that the Twins will end their fourth straight season with 90+ losses. Speculation and debate over potential organizational change will run rampant. And Twins fans will spend another off-season wondering when their favorite team will manage to climb their way out of baseball’s cellar.
Mike Trout hit his 32nd homer, C.J. Wilson recovered from a slow start and the Los Angeles Angels completed a season sweep of Minnesota by beating the Twins 14-4 on Sunday.
Howie Kendrick, who had three hits and four RBIs, and C.J. Cron also homered for Los Angeles. The AL West leaders had a season-high 19 hits and completed their fifth four-game sweep this season, extending a franchise record.
Albert Pujols homered and hit a tiebreaking, two-run double in the ninth inning for his 2,500th hit, leading the Los Angeles Angels over Minnesota 8-5 Saturday night for their third straight win over the Twins.
Minnesota center fielder Danny Santana left Saturday night’s game against the Los Angeles Angels because of a strained left lower back.
Kole Calhoun had three hits and scored four times, sliding into home for the go-ahead run in the 10th inning to give the Los Angeles Angels a 7-6 victory Friday over the Minnesota Twins.
The calendar has turned to September. Kids are back in school. Football season has begun. And the Twins find themselves on the wrong side of another lop-sided record. The temptation to turn the page on the baseball season and forego any further trips to the ballpark is strong. But that would be a mistake.
The Minnesota Twins had plenty of chances to put away the Los Angeles Angels on Thursday night. Whether those opportunities came at the plate or in the field, the struggling Twins wasted them all.
This weekend, the Los Angeles Angels are in town trying to extend their lead in the AL West, and with them comes arguably the best player in all of baseball (not to mention the MVP of the aforementioned All-Star Game): Mike Trout.
Pinch-hitter Chris Iannetta’s sacrifice fly in the ninth inning lifted the Los Angeles Angels to a 5-4 victory over the Minnesota Twins on Thursday night.
Kennys Vargas homered for the second consecutive night and Eduardo Nunez had four hits as the Minnesota Twins defeated the Chicago White Sox 11-4 on Wednesday.
Tyler Flowers’ first career multi-homer game lifted the Chicago White Sox to a 6-3 win over the Minnesota Twins in 10 innings on Tuesday night.
The Minnesota Twins were counting on their best pitcher to pull the team out of its latest funk, and Phil Hughes delivered. Hughes held Baltimore without an earned run over eight innings, Joe Mauer had four RBIs and the Twins won 6-4 Monday to avoid a four-game sweep.
The Minnesota Twins intend to add eight players to their roster, including catcher Josmil Pinto and four pitchers.
J.J. Hardy hit his fourth career grand slam during a seven-run sixth inning, Nelson Cruz connected for his major league-leading 35th home run and Ryan Flaherty also homered, leading the Baltimore Orioles over the Minnesota Twins 12-8 on Sunday. Caleb Joseph had a career-high four hits for the Orioles, who extended their AL East lead over the second-place New York Yankees to nine games.
Chris Davis hit a go-ahead sacrifice fly in the seventh, Jimmy Paredes homered and the Baltimore Orioles beat the Minnesota Twins 3-2 on Saturday night. The Orioles have won five of their past six games and lead the Yankees by eight games in the AL East. The Twins have lost 10 of their past 14 games.
Trevor Plouffe probably won’t ever be revered as one of the Minnesota Twins’ iconic sluggers, yet he will always be able to look back on one historic swing that earned him a place in the team record book.
Jordan Schafer tied a career high with four RBIs, including a two-run single in the 10th inning Thursday night as the Minnesota Twins defeated the Kansas City Royals 11-5.
The Twins’ Phil Hughes was so sharp through seven innings Wednesday night that Royals manager Ned Yost kept looking up at the scoreboard and doing a double-take.
Alex Gordon hit a two-run homer in the ninth inning, giving Kansas City a 2-1 win over the Minnesota Twins and helping the Royals avoid their first three-game skid since mid-July.
Victor Martinez homered and had four RBIs, leading the Detroit Tigers to a 13-4 victory over the Minnesota Twins on Sunday. Rajai Davis also connected for the Tigers, who have won two straight to earn a split of this four-game series.
The foray for Trevor May into major league duty has been difficult. The Minnesota Twins haven’t won any of his starts. This one brought incremental progress, which the rookie right-hander will have to settle for.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Twins aren’t used to scoring runs like this. Kennys Vargas drove in a career-high five and Joe Mauer had three RBIs to help Yohan Pino win his first start in […]
Eduardo Escobar got a career-high five hits, including a homer and a triple, and the Minnesota Twins batted around twice in a 20-6 rout of the Detroit Tigers on Friday night.
