Tyler Duffey got the start for the Twins and only lasted 4.1 innings. 6 runs came across the plate on his watch but only 4 of them were earned—Eduardo Nunez committed an error.
Duffey gave way to Taylor Rogers who proceeded to allow 4 more runs to score before he got the final 2 outs of the inning.
With the score now 10-1, Neil Ramirez was tasked with mopping up and pitched two scoreless innings of relief. Brandon Kintzler handled an eventful 8th inning.
Offensively, the Twins didn’t get on the board until the 5th inning when Kurt Suzuki singled home Brian Dozier. After that run, they were held in check until the 8th inning when Joe Mauer singled in Byron Buxton.
