Twins Extend Win Streak To Six Games

Baseball roundup: Reds build lead, hold on to beat Brewers

Minnesota Twins shortstop/third baseman Eduardo Escobar is not in the starting lineup on Saturday against the Detroit Tigers. Boyd comes off of a 6-3 loss at the Pittsburgh Pirates where he allowed all six runs (five earned) on nine hits over four innings of work. They are now 1-54 when trailing after eight innings. Detroit scratched across a run off Dillon Gee in the seventh inning before tallying three more in the eighth, as Trevor Hildenberger allowed two runners he inherited from Gee to score and let in a run of his own to make it 11-10. The veteran backstop also doubled in the game and drove in another run with a fielder's choice grounder in the eighth frame.

This game was a wild one. "It's tough to swallow, those kind, especially when you need to win games".

Detroit's Miguel Cabrera left the game after six innings with lower-back tightness.

Twins starter Kyle Gibson went 4 2/3 innings giving up 3 runs on 5 hits.

Things unraveled spectacularly from there. He left the bases loaded by striking out Miguel Sano on three straight sliders.

One out later, Eddie Rosario waited on a hanging breaking ball on a 3-2 count, and pulverized it, 455 feet into the seats in right-center.

Zimmermann wouldn't survive the fourth.

He would give up another run on an RBI single by Dozier before departing. Even though we gave away a big lead, we still grinded at-bats and just kept chipping away. They had 16 hits on Friday night and another 19 Saturday. The five-RBI night gave Mauer seven RBIs (and five hits) in the series. Things would tilt back in the Tigers favor from there on.

Mahtook doubled and Justin Upton singled with one out in the first off Twins starter Jose Berrios - who had given up five, first-inning runs in his previous start and won. Rosario's second home run in two games went over the wall in right-center field. Detroit pounded out 13 hits and walked twice with Justin Upton, Jose Iglesias and James McCann each going deep and combining for eight RBI's and six runs on five hits.

Mahtook continued to impress.

METS 7, PHILLIES 6: At Philadelphia, Amed Rosario's first career homer broke a tie leading off the ninth inning, Yoenis Cespedes and Michael Conforto also went deep and NY beat Philadelphia.
