Twins match single-game record for strikeouts in loss to Washington


Minnesota Twins 0

Washington Nationals 2

The Minnesota Twins had just 2 hits in their loss to Washington this afternoon; Minnesota's offense tied a single-game record for strikeouts in the loss.

1. 18 punch outs

The Twins matched a team-record for strikeouts today, striking out 18 times. Washington starter Tanner Roark had 15 of those strikeouts, throwing 121 pitches through his 7 innings of work.


2. No support for Hughes

Phil Hughes kept the Twins in the game today pitching 7 innings and allowed just 2 runs.

Hughes has allowed 3 runs or less in each of his 4 starts this season but has taken the loss in 3 of those starts

3. Sano starts at third

Back in February, Minnesota said they did not want Sano to play much of any third base this year (pending an injury to Trevor Plouffe) according to Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com.

With Plouffe still on the DL, Minnesota was forced to play their budding-star back at his natural position.
