Minnesota Twins: Park Keeps Homering, Twins Keep Losing
The Minnesota Twins lose again by a score of 4-1 this afternoon
After yet another loss, the Minnesota Twins have fallen to 7-17 on the year. Minnesota can’t wait for April to be over. Perhaps May will see a turnaround.
Tyler Duffey started for the Twins and lasted 6.1 innings.
His outing did not get off to a good start as he allowed a 3 run home run in the first inning. None of those runs were charged to him as an error by Eduardo Nunez caused the inning to continue.

Duffey recovered and pitched fairly well the rest of the way. He earned a run in the 6th via back to back doubles from the Tigers. Poor fielding played a part in that run as well.
Ryan O’Rourke took over with one out in the 7th and was tasked with retiring a lefty. He walked him instead and Trevor May got the last two outs.
May also came back out and pitched a clean 8th. Michael Tonkin handled the ninth.
Offensively, the Twins managed just one run in spite of the fact that they got 8 baserunners on. Byung Ho Park provided the Twins’ total run output with a solo shot in the 4th. Granted, the Twins were facing an extremely tough test in Jordan Zimmerman.
