Twins reach 90 losses for third straight season


Sunday was another rough day for the Twins (65-90) as they were demolished in Oakland, 11-7.

It was loss No. 90 for the Twins -- a third straight season with 90+ losses. If they lose 90 games again next season they'll tie a team record with four straight 90 loss seasons. The 1997-2000 Twins dropped 90 games four straight seasons.

Minnesota was outscored 39-14 in the four-game series. That's an average of nearly 10 runs allowed per game.

Cole De Vries start for the Twins. The right-hander from Eden Prairie allowed six runs on four hits and three walks in two innings.

Oswaldo Arcia had a career day for the Twins. He went 3-for-4 at the plate with six RBI. He singled twice and launched his 14th home run of the season.

The Twins wrap up the season at Target Field this week with a three-game series against Detroit and a four-game set with the Indians.
