HOUSTON (AP) — Trey Mancini homered for a second straight game, a three-run shot that led the Houston Astros to a 6-3 win and a three-game sweep of the slumping Minnesota Twins on Thursday night. Mancini, who hit a two-run homer Wednesday, has six home runs and 16 RBIs in 18 games since being traded from the Orioles. The game was tied at 1 in the first when Mancini connected off Chris Archer (2-7) on his shot to the seats in left field. Archer allowed eight hits and five runs in four innings. The Twins have lost a season-high six games and finished 0-6 against the AL West-leading Astros this season. Luis Garcia (11-8) yielded five hits and three runs with five strikeouts in five innings for his third straight win. Rafael Montero struck out one in a scoreless ninth for his eighth save. Jorge Polanco gave Minnesota a 1-0 lead with his homer to right field with two outs in the first inning.
Joe Ryan (9-6, 3.86 ERA) will start the opener of a series against San Francisco tonight against Alex Wood (8-10, 4.54).
EAGAN, Minn. (VIKINGS.COM) — The Vikings on Thursday announced they have re-signed cornerback Tye Smith. In order to add Smith to the roster and remain at the current NFL maximum of 80 players, Minnesota released punter Jordan Berry. Smith spent 2021 on the Vikings practice squad and was elevated for five games last season. He played 17 snaps on defense and 40 on special teams, totaling six tackles last season. Originally a fifth-round pick by Seattle in 2015, Smith has appeared in 45 NFL games with seven starts. The Vikings released Smith on Aug. 16 when they had to reduce their roster from the offseason max of 90 players to 85. Berry joined Minnesota last September and played all 17 games for the Vikings in 2021, grossing a career-best 46.5 yards per punt. The Vikings opened a competition this offseason between the former Pittsburgh Steeler (2015-20) and undrafted rookie free agent Ryan Wright, who played collegiately at Tulane. Additionally, the Vikings reached an injury settlement with undrafted rookie defensive lineman Tyarise Stevenson, who played in Minnesota’s preseason opener at Las Vegas but was waived with an injury designation on Aug. 16. Minnesota is scheduled to close its preseason at 8 p.m. (CT) Saturday in Denver.
