The Twins Unleashed High-Powered Offensive Chaos On The Poor Mariners

Minnesota Twins vs. Seattle Mariners- 6/12/17 MLB Pick Odds and Prediction

USA TODAY Sports

It's not easy to pick the brightest of many bright spots for Minnesota's offense Tuesday. In the ninth, Bellinger walloped a three-run homer, his 17th, off Boone Logan.

Five Twins - Escobar, Eddie Rosario, Kennys Vargas, Jason Castro and Max Kapler - had three or more hits.

The Seattle Mariners face off against the Minnesota Twins in game three of their four game set at Target Field on Wednesday.

Minnesota Twins' Joe Mauer, right, congratulates Eddie Rosario after his second home runs against the Seattle Mariners, during the third inning of a baseball game Tuesday, June 13, 2017, in Minneapolis. "It was spread out pretty well, but obviously a nice response to a tough start to the homestand last night".

Every player in the Mariners' starting lineup had at least one hit Monday.

With slugger Miguel Sano getting a night off, the Twins batted around in a seven-run third inning and a seven-run seventh to snap a five-game home skid.

Nelson Cruz drove in four runs, Haniger had four hits, and the Mariners started a series against the Twins with a football score for the second time in a week, a 14-3 victory fueled by 19 hits.

With his fourth team in four seasons, Gallardo has struggled to get going with the Mariners.

It was comparable to his forgettable start on May 23 in Washington, D.C., where he lasted just four innings, giving up 10 runs on 14 hits with two walks and four strikeouts. Gaviglio (2-1, 2.79 ERA) will be facing the Twins for the first time in his career. Young forced extra innings when he tied the game in the eighth with a home run to right field. Regardless, Gibson earned his third straight victory.

"You have to flush that", Servais said. "When everybody's hitting good and your team wins, everything is happy".

Yeah. That's it. That's allowing a franchise-high 28 hits in a 20-7 loss.

Lester (4-4) allowed one run on five hits and one walk while striking out 10 over seven innings.

"I always keep my mind positive", Santana said. "He's been out a few days and he came back with a vengeance".

With the game out of hand in the eighth, Mariners catcher Carlos Ruiz made his first appearance as a pitcher. The game went from bad to absurd in the seventh when the Twins added seven more runs off Lawrence and lefty Marc Rzepczynski.

Angels 3, Yankees 2, 11 inns.: Andrelton Simmons scored on a infield single by Eric Young in the 11th inning to lift Anaheim past NY. Jarrod Dyson had a homer, a double and an RBI. On a steamy, 88-degree night when six of his first 24 pitches went for hits, Gibson bobbed and weaved his way through six-plus innings. Kyle Gibson spotted the Mariners a 3-0 lead. And if not for Castro's two silly baserunning mistakes that led to outs, Minnesota might have scored 25 runs in the game. After fielding Jorge Polanco's hopper back to the mound, Bergman chose not to try for a double play but neither did he freeze Vargas at third.

Rosario homered again in the third inning, his second in as many at-bats.

The M's jumped back on Gibson in the fourth. One out later, Gamel drilled a double to the left-center gap to plate Zunino.

NOTES: Twins closer Glen Perkins threw a simulated inning Tuesday in Fort Myers, Fla.

The Minnesota Twins have recalled right-hander Ryan Pressly from Triple-A Rochester, the latest change in their chewed-up bullpen.

SHORT HOPS: Right-hander Hisashi Iwakuma is scheduled to throw roughly 45 pitches over three innings in a rehab start at Hi-A Modesto against San Jose (Giants).
