GAME RECAP

 

IMPACT PLAYER

Eddie Rosario, Twins

The just-promoted outfielder hit the first major league pitch he saw for a home run to ignite the Twins in an easy victory.

 

BY THE NUMBERS

6 Twins who hit home runs in their first career at-bat.

10 Games in hitting streak for A’s third baseman Brett Lawrie.

17 Innings in scoreless streak for Kyle Gibson.

 

ON DECK

The Twins wrap up their four-game series with Oakland — and the 11-game homestand — when righthander Ricky Nolasco squares off against A’s lefthander Drew Pomeranz for a matinee.
