Rosario Homers in Debut in Minnesota Twins’ 13-0 Win over A’s
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Eddie Rosario homered on the first pitch he saw in his major league career, Eduardo Escobar also homered and had five RBIs and the Minnesota Twins beat the Oakland Athletics 13-0 on Wednesday night.
Rosario's milestone homer traveled about 400 feet into the left-field seats and gave Minnesota a 1-0 lead in the third inning. He's the 29th major leaguer to homer on his first pitch and the 117th to go deep in his first at-bat.
Escobar homered off Scott Kazmir (2-1) in the sixth and hit a two-run double high off the wall in the seventh. Kennys Vargas added a three-run homer in the eighth.
Kyle Gibson (3-2) pitched six innings and hasn't allowed a run in his past 17 innings.
