Minnesota Twins Fall Apart in New York
With the first four runs, a hit batsman and three walks with the bases loaded the New York Mets had their way with the Minnesota Twins on Wednesday.
According to Bill Ladson writing for MLB.com, right-hander Jake Odorizzi had a no-hitter going into the fifth inning. Loading the bases, walked batters, and the Mets took advantage.
But the Twins did show some spark in the 9th as Jonathan Schoop's run-scoring double and Byron Buxton's RBI triple gave Minnesota hope. New York would hang on for a 9-6 win.
Minnesota pitchers walked 10 batters in the loss.
Twins are off today before a weekend series at home with the Detroit Tigers.
Minnesota optioned pitcher Chase De Jong to Triple-A Rochester on Wednesday and called up Andrew Vasquez who arrives for his second stint in the big leagues.
