The Diamondbacks overcame four home wounds in a win over the Twins

PHOENIX – Sunday’s game couldn’t have started better for Twins. Luis Araez doubled, and Byron Buxton individually, setting the stage for what could have become a big inning. The twins didn’t even know that this opportunity would be the best part of Sunday’s game.

The Twins moved away from that chance with just one run – and would not have scored another in a 7-1 defeat to Arizona Diamondbacks on Sunday afternoon at Chase Field.

That one series came to a goal in Carlos Korea’s double play, which reduced the inning. The Twins (38-30) managed with only three goals in the rest of the road from the Diamondbacks starter Meryl Kelly, who scored seven innings and caused mostly poor contact, and three reliefs.

“We’ve probably gotten a little big trying to do a lot with some of our momentum, and he knows how to play,” said manager Rocco Baldeli. “He knows how to use it. “He did well, and we didn’t adjust as much as we could today.”

Meanwhile, the Diamondbacks (32-36) suffered four home wounds on the way to victory in the series.

Starter Chris Archer, who spoke on Saturday about his excitement to play in front of his father, when he flew across the country to watch it on Father’s Day, had a chance to win at his start.

His only two flaws appeared in solo home wounds to Christian Walker, who now has 18 leaders in the team. Walker’s shot in the second inning equalized the game, and his fourth inning brought the Diamondbacks the lead.

The first home run, Archer said, was the only terrain he wanted to return to – a misplaced slider he left over the board. Archer said that the field that Walker hit for the second homer, he did as he intended.

“He beat me to the ground,” Archer said. “Pick up your hat.”

Although the Twins talked about how the new rule, which limits the number of pitchers in the active list to 13, will mean longer outings than their starters, a well-rested fight combined with a day off on Monday led to them sinking into the bench in the fifth.

After Archer came out, Griffin Jacks came in and immediately gave up on Houmran Pavin Smith, the first hitter he faced. But it wasn’t until the sixth inning that the Diamondbacks really broke away.

Left Caleb Tilbar allowed a couple of singles and a walk to fill the bases before falling behind 3-0 behind rookie Buddy Kennedy. Kennedy then broke his first home run of his career, the Grand Slam, earning a standing ovation from Chase Field’s audience.

“I think he just had a hard day finding a point of release, as much as anything else,” Baldeli said of Tilbar. “It simply came to our notice then. We just have to find a way to get over it and prepare for the next trip. “

The defeat marks the end of 3-3 times for the Twins, who took two of the three in Seattle before heading to Arizona. He also sends them on a day off with the Guardians on their heels. Cleveland, who are 8-2 in the last 10 games, will come to the city to start a series of three games on Tuesday, just one game behind Twins on the table.

“It’s (obviously) a difficult way to end the journey,” Baldeli said. “We played good baseball on this trip. We probably played one of our toughest games as a whole today at the end. That’s not good, but we’ll be fine. We will regroup and be ready to leave on Tuesday. “
