Minnesota Twins 0
Kansas City Royals 7
The Twins are still winless on the season after another loss to the Royals Saturday.
Minnesota failed to score a run, committed two errors and turned to their bullpen earlier than expected.
1. Franchise record
With the loss tonight, Minnesota has officially had their worst opening start to a season.
2. Off night for Escobar
Eduardo Escobar has arguably been the Twins best player. Tonight was a night he would like to forget as his two errors in the fifth inning were gut punching.
His first error came when he booted a potential double-play ball giving Kansas City runners on first and second. Later in the inning with the bases loaded, Escobar made a costly throwing error which allowed another run for Kansas City.
3. Strikeouts piling up
Minnesota struck out nine times tonight and failed to produce a single run going 0-5 with runners in scoring position.
Minnesota struck out 49 times coming into tonight and are on track to break the MLB record for team strikeouts.
Tweet of the Night:
Ricky Nolaso will make his season debut for the Twins on Sunday afternoon against Kansas City righty Edinson Vólquez.
