Blue Jays blast 4 bombs, send Twins to 5th straight loss


There weren't too many highlights Friday night as the Minnesota Twins dropped their fifth straight game, falling to the Toronto Blue Jays 9-3 at Target Field.

It's already the third time this year the Twins have lost five straight.

Tyler Duffey (1-3) started on the mound for the Twins, he couldn't complete six inning and gave up six runs. Aaron Sanchez (4-1) held the Twins to two runs on eight hits in seven innings for the victory.

Minnesota's only real bright spot was the play of newly acquired outfielder Robbie Grossman.

The Blue Jays were playing long ball as they hit four home runs in the game, three of them came off the Twins bullpen. It all started with this two-run blast from Josh Donaldson in the third inning.

Pat Dean (0-1) will make his first Major League start on Saturday afternoon against J.A. Happ, who will take the mound for the Jays.
