GAME RECAP

 

IMPACT PLAYER

Josh Willingham, twins

A two-run home run helped the Twins end a losing streak and made him Target Field’s No. 1 home run hitter.

 

BY THE NUMBERS

3 Outfield assists by center fielder Aaron Hicks, which leads all rookies.

.524 Eduardo Escobar’s batting average (11-for-21) when he is in the starting lineup.

2 Crowds of greater than 30,000 at Target Field this year; Saturday’s 37,503 was biggest since Opening Day.

 

ON DECK

The Twins can salvage a split of the four-game series with Texas on Sunday, and they’ll have Kevin Correia (2.86 ERA) on the mound.
