The Minnesota Twins dropped their third straight contest of the spring this afternoon to the Philadephia Phillies at home in Fort Myers.
Tommy Milone had the start for the Twins. His first two innings were 3 up, 3 down. In the 3rd inning he was touched for a solo home run by Cameron Rupp. That would be the only baserunner Milone would allow.
Glen Perkins took over for Milone in the 4th with a scoreless inning. Rupp again went deep in the 5th, this time off of Casey Fien. The Phillies added two more runs in the 6th and 8th off Michael Tonkin and Dan Runtzler respectively.
On the offensive side for the Twins, Juan Centeno singled home Max Kepler in the 2nd inning against Phillies starter Zach Eflin. Phillies pitchers would hold Minnesota hitters in check until the 7th when Reynaldo Rodriguez scored on a Buck Britton ground out.
The Twins will visit the Red Sox at JetBlue Park at 12:05 pm CST. Ervin Santana will take the mound for Minnesota.
