EAGAN, Minn.—Acclimating to a new offence, the Minnesota Vikings are likely to be without at least one offensive starter in their preseason opener at New Orleans tomorrow night.
You are here
MINNEAPOLIS—Jake Odorizzi punched out Yuli Gurriel looking, and the usually stoic right-hander couldn't help but clench his fist and let out a yell.
Odorizzi and the Minnesota Twins made another early season statement.
Odorizzi pitched seven solid innings to outduel Justin Verlander, Ehire Adrianza homered off Houston's ace and Minnesota beat the Astros 1-0 last night.
MINNEAPOLIS—Even with Josh Donaldson missing 16 games on the disabled list, Jose Bautista gone, and Kendrys Morales off to a slow start, the Toronto Blue Jays are powering up again and supplying the offence they've become used to north of the border.
Justin Smoak and Russell Martin homered, and Yangervis Solarte had three hits, as Toronto topped the Minnesota Twins 7-5 last night.
MINNEAPOLIS—Kyle Gibson appeared headed for a short outing, and the Minnesota Twins' playoff outlook looked as shaky as their starting pitcher.
Minnesota's offence boosted both with a big rally.
MINNEAPOLIS—Minnesota Twins' manager Paul Molitor hoped for Byron Buxton to simply get on base with two outs in the 10th inning, knowing the possibilities of what his center-fielder could do on the bases with his speed.
Buxton showed off his power instead.
