Saturday's win was their eighth of the walk-off variety this season. He made just one start for the Twins - officially a quality one - improving his seasonal numbers to a 4.29 ERA (101 ERA+) and 2.09 strikeout-to-walk ratio. "I wasn't trying to do too much the whole day and I figured I'd keep that approach", Davis said.
Byron Buxton is due to come off the disabled list and move back into the starting lineup when the Twins open a series in San Diego on Tuesday. The left-hander escaped jams in the second and third innings.
"Those are tough", Molitor said. "I think overall it was good".
In 2013, Enns worked as a long reliever for low-A Charleston in the South Atlantic League as the Yankees stretched him out to start him in high-A Tampa in the Florida State League later in the season.
Brian Dozier got the Twins off to a great start, hitting another leadoff home run. "As always, we'll have a chance to figure out how we're going to proceed, barring injuries and anything else that happens over the next couple of days". He will become the 64th skipper in major league history to reach the mark. The Twins added Garcia last Monday, but that was several games in the standings ago. Instead, they were swept in a three-game series at Dodger Stadium and suffered a walk-off loss on a two-run homer by Rajai Davis in the bottom of the ninth on Saturday night in Oakland. Matched up against right-hander Chris Smith, the Twins loaded the bases in the second on singles by Eduardo Escobar and Robbie Grossman sandwiched around a walk to Eddie Rosario. But Lavarnway struck out and Matt Joyce grounded into a double play. He hit 354 homers with 1,244 RBIs in 18 years and drove in more than 100 runs in a season for Cincinnati, Houston and Baltimore.
"It goes to show you that we're in a good situation right now, " Frazier said. He allowed eight hits and two walks in five innings and had to be lifted at that point, having thrown 97 pitches. FanGraphs now gives the Twins just an 8.5% chance to make the playoffs.
Opposing the A's on the mound was an old friend in Bartolo Colon.
As he has previously been outrighted (including once this year), Recker can elect free agency rather than taking the assignment.
Now the Yankees turn their attention to Gray, the 27-year-old righthander who was scratched from his scheduled start on Monday in anticipation of a trade somewhere. But executives who speak with Cashman say he has been reticent to discuss the next level down also, especially putting multiple pieces from that group into one deal. "Anybody that's played with him and managed him and been around him as a person knows how special he is".
