Cueto mows down Twins as Reds take series; Sano on the way?


Another loss for the Twins Wednesday afternoon as they fell in Cincinnati by a score of 2-1.

Minnesota had just four hits on the day, three of them singles and one of them a double for Brian Dozier. They simply couldn’t figure out Reds right-hander Johnny Cueto, who fired 8 innings of one-run ball while striking out 8.

Trevor May (4-7) took the loss for the Twins despite pitching 6 1/3 innings while allowing just one earned run.

Kennys Vargas had one of Minnesota’s hits, but after the game the Twins optioned him to Double-A Chattanooga.

Twins Daily says it could open the door for Miguel Sano to be called up, but a corresponding roster move hasn’t been made yet by the Twins.

After winning 20 games in May the Twins went 11-17 in June and they're off to a slow start now in July.
