MINOT, ND – The Minot Hot Tots where swept by the Duluth Huskies in their weekend home series. On Sunday the Huskies scored 9 runs in the first two inning to lead 9-1. The Hot Tots would try to rally late scoring 4 in the 8th and 2 in the 9th, but fell short 9-7. Minot hits the road for a four-game series tonight through Friday in Eau Claire.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Twins emptied their bench to finish a three-game sweep of the Chicago White Sox, even the two guys with eye trouble. Ryan Jeffers hit a two-out RBI single in the 12th inning to cap a late rally by the Twins that secured a 5-4 victory over the White Sox on Sunday. Jesse Scholtens (1-3) loaded the bases with no outs before enticing Christian Vázquez to hit a 2-0 fastball into a shortstop-to-home-to-first double play. That left a runner on third for Jeffers, who lifted the Twins (53-48) to a three-game lead on Cleveland in the AL Central — their largest in more than five weeks. Nineteen players contributed, including Willi Castro and Joey Gallo. They were out of the starting lineup all series because of conjunctivitis, commonly known as pinkeye. When Vázquez entered, Jeffers had no backup catcher. He even took a foul ball off the chin in the 11th, giving the Twins a bit of a scare. Castro delivered a pinch-hit RBI double to spark a three-run ninth inning. Gallo, who scored the tying run in the 10th to keep the game going, tried a drag bunt in the 11th that sailed in the air for an easy popup to end the inning. His vision wasn’t clear enough for a regular at-bat. Castro hadn’t been in the dugout all series until he got the call to hit.
RHP Kenta Maeda (2-5, 5.10 ERA) starts today, beginning a three-game series against Seattle. RHP Luis Castillo (6-7, 3.04 ERA) takes the mound for the Mariners.
