by the numbers

11 Triples by Rosario this season, most by a Twin since Cristian Guzman had 14 in 2003

11 Strikeouts by Ervin Santana on Saturday, most by a Twin this season and tied for most he’s ever had

6 Saves by Kevin Jepsen as a Twin, in six opportunities, despite giving up a home run and loading the bases before closing out the victory.

3 Strikeouts by hobbled slugger Miguel Sano in four at-bats.

5 Hits by the Twins, including just three off starter Lance McCullers.

 

on deck

With most of his friends and family in the crowd, Houston native Tyler Duffey will try to win series for Twins against his former favorite team.
