MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — It looked like a sure triple play. A double play Pedro Alvarez Jersey , at least. In the end, the Detroit Tigers got just one out from it, and the Minnesota Twins made them pay.Johnny Field homered twice, Jorge Polanco hit a bases-loaded triple and the Twins beat the Tigers 11-4 on Wednesday night.The game turned on an odd play in the fifth inning with the Twins leading 6-4.With Robbie Grossman on second and Tyler Austin on first and nobody out, Twins manager Paul Molitor called for a hit-and-run.Willians Astudillo followed with a line drive right at second baseman Dawel Lugo, who threw to second to — it appeared — easily double off Grossman. Shortstop Ronny Rodriguez’s relay to first base seemed to beat Austin, but was in the dirt and Niko Goodrum couldn’t make the scoop.That’s when it got interesting.The Twins claimed Rodriguez was not touching second base when he took Lugo’s throw and a replay reversed the call, putting Grossman back on second.“I was closing my eyes hoping not to see a triple play, and I missed the play,” Twins manager Paul Molitor said. “A couple guys in the dugout said we want to check it . so our guys were on top of it and they picked it up right away.”Rodriguez was charged with the error, and it was a costly one. The Twins went on to score five runs in the inning, all with two outs. Chris Gimenez hit a two-run single, and after Joe Mauer walked to fill the bases, Polanco cleared them with a triple to the gap in left-center.“We had a triple play that turned into a five-run inning,” Tigers manager Ron Gardenhire said. “That’s not good.”Austin also homered and Astudillo had three hits for the Twins.Christin Stewart tripled and drove in two runs for the Tigers.Tyler Duffey (2-2) earned the win with two scoreless innings in relief of starter Jake Odorizzi. Detroit starter Matthew Boyd (9-13) gave up six runs in 3 2/3 innings.Field gave the Twins a 6-4 lead with his second home run of the game. The ball was originally ruled in play http://www.oriolesfanproshop.com/authentic-tim-beckham-jersey , but a video review showed that it barely cleared the fence before bouncing back onto the field.There was no such doubt on Field’s first home run. He led off the second by hitting Boyd’s first pitch off the facing of the second deck in left, giving the Twins a 4-1 lead.Austin’s two-run drive followed Robbie Grossman’s RBI single in the first inning. It was Austin’s 17th homer of the season and ninth since the Twins acquired him from the Yankees in a July 30 trade.The Tigers got RBI singles from Niko Goodrum and James McCann in the third inning, and Stewart tied the game with a sacrifice fly in the fourth.MORE FRUSTRATION FOR ODORIZZIThe Twins acquired Odorizzi in a February trade with the Rays, hoping that he’d stabilize the starting rotation and be a solid No. 2 or 3 starter. And he was durable, making 33 starts on the season. But he would agree that too many of them were like his outing on Wednesday.“Truth be told, I’ll probably forget about 2018 tomorrow,” said Odorizzi, who gave up four earned runs on six hits and five walks in just three innings. “I’m going to focus on next year, improving and getting back to the pitcher I am and that this team deserves.”Odorizzi finishes 2018 with a 7-10 record and a career-worst 4.49 ERA. The five free passes he issued on Wednesday also pushed his walk rate to 3.8 per nine innings, tying his highest total in his five major league seasons.“Take the good from this season,” Odorizzi said. “I made all my starts. I remained healthy. It was by no means a year that I’m proud of, but a year that I learned a lot from. So if I can make the adjustments next year and stay healthy, I’m in for a lot better and will show the fans a lot better too.”MOLITOR MILESTONEThe victory gave Molitor his 300th career managerial victory in his fourth season with the Twins.“It snuck up on me a little bit,” said Molitor, whose career record stands at 300-343. “I guess baseball likes round numbers. I’d rather get to 300 wins before you’ve already seen 300 losses Anthony Santander Jersey , but that hasn’t been the case.”TRAINER’S ROOMTwins: Mitch Garver returned to action for the first time in two weeks, pinch-hitting in the eighth inning and playing first base in the ninth. He’d been out since Sept. 12, when he suffered a concussion after taking a foul tip off his mask while catching.UP NEXTTigers: LHP Francisco Liriano (5-11, 4.40) will pitch for Detroit on Thursday night in the series finale. Liriano lost consecutive starts against the Twins in August, giving up seven earned runs and walking seven in 6 2/3 innings.Twins: LHP Gabriel Moya (3-1, 4.72) will serve as the “opener” for the Twins on Thursday. LHP Stephen Gonsalves is among the likely candidates to pitch in relief of Moya. SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The Pittsburgh Pirates lead the major leagues with 13 shutouts. Trevor Williams was the starting pitcher in seven of them.Manager Clint Hurdle doesn’t think it’s a coincidence, either.Williams and two relievers combined on a six-hitter, and the Pirates blanked the San Francisco Giants 4-0 on Saturday night.“He sets the tone for things,” Hurdle said. “When that fastball has the finish like it had tonight, that’s when you’re seeing the outings that you see him string together. He keeps everybody engaged.”Williams (10-8) allowed five hits and walked one in seven innings. The right-hander has allowed two runs over his last 29 innings — a 0.62 ERA.“It’s the work in between starts,” Williams said. “(Pitching coach Ray Searage) and I highlighted stuff that we needed to work on and made it more process-driven. We recognized right away that it was my four-seam and sinker tonight were going to play.”Williams had been scheduled to pitch a day earlier, but Hurdle went with Clay Holmes to give the rest of the rotation extra rest.It worked just fine.“He’s pitching down in the zone and getting a lot of early contact,” Pirates first baseman Josh Bell said. “He keeps us off our feet and keeps us in the dugout.”Keone Kela and Felipe Vazquez each retired three batters to complete the shutout.Bell homered for the second time in three days. Elias Diaz added two hits for the Pirates after coming in as an injury replacement for Francisco Cervelli.The start of the game was delayed for a ceremony honoring home run king Barry Bonds, who became the 10th player in Giants history to have his jersey retired. Several of his former teammates and managers, including Dusty Baker and Jim Leyland http://www.oriolesfanproshop.com/authentic-brad-brach-jersey , were on hand.Williams was warming up in right field when Bonds jogged out to greet the fans in the left field stands.“I felt like such a jerk out there,” Williams said. “It was weird timing. I felt like all the eyeballs were burning a hole through me.”Buster Posey and Evan Longoria had two hits apiece for San Francisco. The Giants have lost nine of their last 11 home games.“You could feel the crowd, the energy. We just couldn’t get it going offensively,” San Francisco manager Bruce Bochy said. “The three-run homer, that’s a pretty good punch there.”Bell continued his strong series since coming off the disabled list earlier in the week. He stopped a 0-for-13 slide with a homer on Thursday, and then had three hits on Friday.After grounding into a double play in his first at-bat Saturday, Bell hit his eighth homer off Ty Blach (6-7) in the fourth. Bell’s three-run drive came after Gregory Polanco bunted for a leadoff hit and David Freese reached on an infield single.Blach allowed four runs over four innings in his first start since May 27.DANDY DEBUTIn his first major league appearance since 2016 with Atlanta, Casey Kelly made quite a Giants debut a day after being called up from Triple-A Sacramento.The right-hander pitched five scoreless innings in relief. He could be a candidate to start Friday at Cincinnati when the Giants need a fifth starter again.“What a great job he did,” Bochy said. “Really pitched well. He’s been throwing the ball well. That’s why he’s up here.”WORTH NOTINGThe Pirates called up left-hander Buddy Boshers and right-hander Michael Feliz from Triple-A Indianapolis. Right-handers Clay Holmes and Casey Sadley were sent down.TRAINER’S ROOMPirates: Cervelli left in the fourth as a precaution getting hit in the facemask by a foul tip in the first. Cervelli has had concussion issues in the past.Giants: 1B Brandon Belt (hyperextended knee) began a rehab assignment with Triple-A Sacramento.UP NEXTRight-hander Dereck Rodriguez (5-1, 2.34 ERA) pitches the series finale for San Francisco. Rodriguez leads NL rookies in ERA and is tied for second in wins. Right-hander Joe Musgrove (4-6, 3.41 ERA) goes for the Pirates.__
