Twins Activate Byron Buxton, Will Play Thursday Night At Angels

Twins Activate Byron Buxton, Will Play Thursday Night At Angels”

Buxton has tested his ability to run and do other baseball activities with a hairline fracture on his toe.

Kepler remained in the game - and hit the next pitch into the seats in right to tie the score at 4-4. He struck out four and walked none while making 94 pitches.

Kinsler, hitting.191 before the game, hit a two-run homer on a hanging curve in the second to open the scoring. "It's disappointing to have the whole outing kind of tarnished".

The two-way phenom, who earned his third win as pitcher when he returned to the mound Sunday after suffering a mild ankle sprain, is scheduled to start against the Twins in Sunday's series finale at Angel Stadium.

Justin Upton added a solo homer on another hanger in the third, and Albert Pujols and Japanese sensation Shohei Ohtani added back-to-back doubles for a 4-0 lead. Pujols and Ohtani followed with back-to-back doubles for a 4-0 lead.

Pujols was honored briefly in the first inning for getting his 3,000th hit last Friday in Seattle. He also flawlessly turned a key 3-6-3 double play at first base to end the seventh.

Trevor Hildenberger got the first two outs of the seventh before Ohtani blasted the first pitch out to center, bringing an announced crowd of 30,127 to its feet.

The Minnesota Twins will have Byron Buxton in center field when they take on the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Thursday night. Buxton was out with migraines and a subsequent broken toe after fouling a ball off his foot during a rehab assignment. Buxton was able to do a range of running drills earlier in the week with no issues, so the Twins opted to activate him without sending him back out on another rehab assignment. He yielded two walks and a double while pitching a scoreless eighth. He made only one start this season before his latest injury problem. Lance Lynn gets the ball, and he is 1-3 with a 7.28 ERA and 33 strikeouts this season. Not to mention the Los Angeles Angels have owned losing teams so far this season.

Angels: Tyler Skaggs (3-2, 3.08 ERA) makes his first career appearance against Minnesota. Just yikes. Skaggs has allowed just four runs in his last 17.2 innings and all three of those games came against loaded offensive clubs, so his frightful numbers at home are easy to overlook based on his current form.
