Rosario, Twins hammer Mariners

Rosario, Twins hammer Mariners”

Seattle answered with four more runs off Mejia in the second. Like, they had more hits than a vague google search result, more hits than a Rocky movie, and more hits than The Beatles, as the saying goes. Christian Bergman gave up nine runs on ten hits while striking out three over 2.2 innings of work, taking the loss to fall to 3-4 this season. Miguel Sano is leading the Twins with 15 home runs, 10 doubles and 46 RBI. Ryan Raburn and Michael A. Taylor had two hits for the Nationals.

Rosario put his club ahead in the second inning on a first-pitch offering from Bergman, which Rosario hit 436 feet into the second deck in right-center field.

Perhaps it was Eddie Rosario's three-homer performance. Right-hander Sam Gaviglio (2-1 with a 2.79 ERA) will oppose Minnesota right-hander Ervin Santana (8-3, 2.20).

Minnesota pushed the calculator into record territory with a seven-run seventh inning against Lawrence and Marc Rzepczynski before Tony Zych got the final out.

HOUSTON - Rougned Odor homered in consecutive plate appearances in the seventh and eighth innings as Texas rallied from an early deficit to defeat Houston. Each homer came on the first pitch, and the second put Minnesota up 11-3.

Ben Gamel and Haniger came around to score on a two-run single by Cruz.

The M's jumped back on Gibson in the fourth.

Jaso was pinch hitting for Gerrit Cole, who earned the win (4-6).

-Joe Mauer was the only starter without multiple hits Tuesday.

DETROIT - David Peralta cracked the first pitch of the ninth inning for his sixth home run of the season to lift Arizona to victory after it blew a 6-0 lead.

Wednesday's showcase has the chance to be the first pitchers' duel of the series. His ERA would go from 1.75 to 2.44.

Not even 12 Mariners hits, the most Gibson had allowed since his second big-league start, could keep him from evening his record at 4-4. 4 for 5, three homers, five RBIs.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Having Mitch Haniger batting high in the lineup again ought to be a lift for the Seattle Mariners in this up-and-down season.

In the bottom half, Max Kepler crushed his eighth homer of the season to roughly the same spot Dyson did.

It was comparable to his forgettable start on May 23 in Washington, D.C., where he lasted just four innings, giving up 10 runs on 14 hits with two walks and four strikeouts. He was greeted by a solo home run by Rosario - his third.

The annual Dress-Up Day started a year ago, where players were asked to wear clothes associated with their birthplaces.

Mariners right-hander Felix Hernandez will get another rehab start this weekend with Triple-A Tacoma, after a successful turn on Sunday when he retired the first 14 batters and experienced no trouble with his right shoulder. In the eighth, the bullpen couldn't shut the game down. He had already allowed three runs to the Angels when Albert Pujols came to bat with the bases loaded in the fourth inning. Twenty runs scored in a game is, of course, an outlier, but just how much shock is warranted at the Twins' offensive anomaly? Kyle Seager hit an opposite field ground-rule double that brought home Cano to make it 2-0.
