(Live HD-) Nationals - Twins live free 23 April 2023

Gallo scored on Correa’s opposite-field single to right, but Thompson (2-1) got the next three batters to fly out, two on popups and ultimately earned the victory with 2⅓ solid innings. Simeon Woods-Richardson relieved López and threw two scoreless innings before allowing the first three batters in the seventh to reach base. The third, Abrams, emptied the bases with an opposite-field home run into the porch in right field to make it 8-2.

But the Twins were never really in this one, falling behind 5-2 and 8-2. A day after officially signing a four-year contract extension worth $73. 5 million, López made his worst start of the season, allowing five earned runs on eight hits and two walks in four innings — more than half the 15 hits he had surrendered over his first four starts. “There wasn’t a ton of hard contact, ” López said. “But singles are singles regardless of the exit velo(city) and launch angle and all that stuff. ” With the temperature at game time a chilly 35 degrees, it was the coldest game López — who hails from Venezuela and was traded here from Miami — had ever pitched in by about 20 degrees.

Although not charged with an error, the Twins’ defense struggled, too. In the first inning, Meneses grounded to Jose Miranda but the third baseman bounced the throw and the Nats’ first baseman was awarded an RBI for scoring leadoff hitter Alex Call. Call, who was born in Burnsville and went to high school in River Falls, Wis., was 0 for 2 but walked three times and scored two runs for Washington. In the fourth, Twins center fielder Michael A.

Sinking Twins routed by NationalsThe Twins are in something of a tailspin. Despite starting Saturday a half-game up on second-place Cleveland in the American League Central, Minnesota has been playing its worst baseball of the young season. After blowing a late lead against the Washington Nationals on Friday, the Twins were blown out by the last place team in the National League East on Saturday, 10-4.

” Twins pitchers gave up 15 hits and five walks. Twins batters struck out 11 times, went 2 for 9 with runners in scoring position and stranded 10. Poor throws by the defense helped the Nationals score two extra runs. Joey Meneses drove in a pair of runs with a double and sacrifice fly against Twins starter Pablo López (1-2), and CJ Abrams added a three-run home run off reliever Simeon Woods-Richardson in the seventh inning. With the victory, Washington clinched its first series win of the season. Byron Buxton homered, and Trevor Larnach hit a two-run double in the seventh inning to cut the Nationals’ lead to 8-4. Carlos Correa drove in a run with a single in the fifth and went 3 for 4 with a walk.

Since winning the opening two games of a four-game series at Yankee Stadium, the Twins have lost six of seven. “We’re not playing well. That we know, ” manager Rocco Baldelli said. “Every guy in that room knows that we’re not playing the way that we need to. Most of the games haven’t necessarily been like this, though. This was a challenging game on both sides of the ball for us.

He also hit two batters and allowed Jeimer Candelario to score on a wild pitch. But it wasn’t so much the weather as his execution, López said. “It was just about really turning the page and making a better pitch after giving up hits, ” he said. “That’s really what it came down to, the times I didn’t execute a better pitch after the previous one. ” The Twins were down 5-0, and without a hit against starter Chad Kuhl, when Buxton drilled a leadoff home run in the third. Reliever Mason Thompson started the fifth inning for Washington and allowed a run when leadoff hitter Joey Gallo reached on a strikeout and passed ball, then moved to second on an error by catcher Riley Adams.
