Twins' Santana looks to stay hot versus Mariners

Twins' Santana looks to stay hot versus Mariners

Minnesota Twins' Jason Castro hits an RBI single off Seattle Mariners starting pitcher Christian Bergman in the third inning of a baseball game Tuesday, June 13, 2017, in Minneapolis. Best to forget this one. The victory was Tampa Bay's sixth in its past seven games.

Seattle gave up a franchise-record 28 hits in the game, and few of them were bloops. The Red Sox had 26 on August 15, 2015 in winning a 22-10 slugfest in Boston.

Seattle was on the wrong side of history in another category as the 28 hits allowed were the most in Mariners franchise history. Monday's loss dropped theTwins to 12-19 at Target Field this season despite an impressive 20-9 road record.

The M's added to that in the second, as Jarrod Dyson barreled one up and clobbered it over the tall wall in right center and into the middle deck for his third home run of the season, setting a new personal record.

-Rosario (4 hits), Jason Castro (4), Kennys Vargas (4) and Eduardo Escobar (5) combined for 17 hits. After Mitch Haniger struck out (including a bunt attempt), Robinson Cano singled Gamel to third, then Gamel scored on Nelson Cruz' ground out to second.

It was the type of showing that frustrates a manager. There are all kinds of stories, rumors, game coverage, and Vines of dudes getting hit in the beans every day.

But it's also not a game that Scott Servais or his players can dwell upon.

"It feels great", Rosario said.

The annual Dress-Up Day started previous year, where players were asked to wear clothes associated with their birthplaces. It is one loss. "Just a good night to hit".




"Things got away from us".

"He made a little bit of a statement out there tonight", manager Paul Molitor said.

Gaviglio has made six starts, and the Mariners have won the last three games he's started. However, when he does pitch, he oftentimes has provided a solid start. "But I keep working hard". "And the pitches that I thought were good seemed to find holes". "They tried to narrow the gap".

There were no misplayed balls by the Mariners' defense against the Twins. Like, they had more hits than a vague google search result, more hits than a Rocky movie, and more hits than The Beatles, as the saying goes.

And this is the conundrum with Bergman, who doesn't possess unhittable, swing-and-miss stuff.

Mariners right-hander Felix Hernandez will get another rehab start this weekend with Triple-A Tacoma, after a successful turn on Sunday when he retired the first 14 batters and experienced no trouble with his right shoulder. He is 1-1 this season with a 4.18 earned run average. That gave Gibson a 4-3 lead. With the King, it's the first year they don't need him to be the ace to reach the playoffs, but they do need him to post the numbers of a third starter, a reasonable expectation at this stage in his career.

It didn't happen. It actually got worse. "Everything was thigh-high and didn't have any tilt to it or have a whole lot of movement either".

Rosario homered again in the third inning, his second in as many at-bats.

In the bottom half, Max Kepler crushed his eighth homer of the season to roughly the same spot Dyson did. Seven Twins had two or more RBI.
