The Minnesota Twins fell to 4-3 this spring with two losses today against the Blue Jays and the Cardinals. We recapped the first game earlier today. In the second game, Ricky Nolasco started things off.
Nolasco threw three scoreless frames, allowed three hits and struck out 4. It was an encouraging development for a pitcher looking to bounce back from a tumultuous season.
The Twins got to the Cardinals starter, Michael Wacha, in the first inning and tacked another on with a sacrifice fly off Luke Weaver.
The Cardinals got on the board with an RBI single in the 5th. Logan Darnell blew the lead in the 6th allowing a 2 run home run off the bat of Anthony Garcia. The Cardinals added two more in the 9th off Aaron Thompson.
Engelb Vielma singled home Ryan Sweeney to put the Twins within two in the bottom of the ninth. They couldn’t keep the rally going and lost 5-3.
Next: Who Leads off for the Twins?
The Twins will host the Phillies tomorrow at 12:05 CST in Fort Myers. Tommy Milone gets the start.
