GAME RECAP

 

IMPACT PLAYER

Mike Fiers, Houston

No, it wasn’t an encore no-hitter, but holding the Twins to three hits over six-plus innings wasn’t a bad follow-up.

 

BY THE NUMBERS

20 Consecutive innings with no more than one hit by the Twins, a streak broken in the eighth inning.

5⅓ Scoreless innings pitched by the Twins Saturday, bringing their streak to 14⅔ innings.

7.40 Mike Pelfrey’s ERA in his eight losses (it’s 1.05 in his six victories).

 

ON DECK

The Twins will try to win their third series in a row, but it will likely take a strong performance by slumping Ervin Santana.
