The Twins fell to 1-5 on their eight-game California road trip, with blown leads a common theme:
Monday: Dodgers 6, Twins 4
Twins lost the lead in the eighth as normally reliable Taylor Rogers gave up a three-run homer to Cody Bellinger.
Wednesday: Dodgers 6, Twins 5
The Twins blew a five-run lead, with the bullpen giving up the tying run in the eighth and the winning run in the ninth.
Saturday: A’s 5, Twins 4
Rogers, trying to earn his first save at any level as a pro, gave up Rajai Davis’ two-run homer in the ninth.
Sunday: A’s 6, Twins 5 (12)
Oakland, down 5-0, rallied with two eighth-inning runs before a Yonder Alonso home run in the 12th off Tyler Duffey.
