    Twins pull away from Angels to snap five-game losing streak

    The Twins took the lead in the middle innings, breaking open a tied game with a Jermaine Palacios sacrifice fly in the fourth inning before Gary Sánchez launched a loud three-run home run to left-center field in the bottom of the fifth to help the Twins pull away for good. Sánchez also drove in a run in the first inning, finishing the day with four runs batted in while Jose Miranda and Gio Urshela each had three hits in the win.


    Twins' Byron Buxton says he knew in April he needed knee surgery

    Buxton played in 92 games, and for most of them, he said it required four and a half hours of treatment just to get his knee ready and loose enough to play. His knee often forced him out of the lineup, even with a number of days off and days at designated hitter. When he was able to play, his performance made him an all-star for the first time in his career.

    One inning sinks Cobb, snaps SF Giants' winning streak at five

    One tough-luck inning sunk the Giants Saturday against the D-backs and snapped their five-game winning streak. They matched their season-high scoring output against Merrill Kelly — two runs — including Mike Yastrzemski’s third homer in five games, but a five-run fourth inning that took Alex Cobb 35 pitches to escape proved too much to overcome in a 5-2 loss.
