Twins broke up in 11-0 loss to White Sox

The twins head into the All-Star break after losing three of four at home to American League Central rival Chicago, a grueling 11- defeat at Target Field Sunday afternoon.

Still, it beats this time last year, when the twins were more than half last. Despite losing seven of their last 10 games, the Twins enter the break in first place, two games ahead of second-placed Cleveland and three ahead of the White Sox.

“When you win games, it feels better,” manager Rocco Baldelli said before the game.

Andrew Vaughan and Josh Harrison each scored three, and right-hander Dylan Siege—an All-Star snub despite a best-ever record in baseball—limited the twins to a further two walks. Siege, who scored seven runs, improved to 9-4 and reduced his earned average to 2.15.

Chicago broke the game 4–0 with a six-run, 10-better seventh inning, mostly right-handed Joe Smith with five hits and a walk in a third of an innings. Three of these hits were home runs by Yoan Moncada, Andrew Vaughan and Josh Harrison, the last single shot that made it 10–0.

Adam Engel doubles in the ninth off reliever Emilio Pagan in a run.

Making his first debut since being placed on the disabled list with a hip stiffness on July 5, Chris Archer cruised through four innings before touching down for four two-out runs in five innings. The right-hander gave a two-run double to Tim Anderson and finished runners-up in the second and third places. Right-hander Tyler Duffy relieved and gave Moncada a two-run double.

Archer (2-4) missed most of 2020 and last season due to injuries and has averaged 4.1 innings in 16 at the start of this season.

The White Sox, who started the season with injuries to key players such as Lance Lynn, Lucas Giolito and Joe Kelly, plus position players Moncada, Aloy Jimonez and AJ Pollock, have won 11 of their last 18 games and shaved two of their games. Huh. Split losses along the series.

The Twins (50–44) entered last year’s break on a four-game winning streak, a sweep of the Detroit Tigers capped by a walk-off win, but 39–50 and 15 games behind first-place Chicago. Were. He finished 73-89 and 20 games in the first.

“People grind it out last year,” Baldelli said. “We made some improvements and good adjustments in the second half, which I was really proud of. But overall, it was a tough season, it was a tough year in many ways. And it’s a different one when you’re winning There is energy.”

The Twins have five days off before their next game as they open Saturday in Detroit’s Comerica Park.
