Jorge Polanco received another major blow and rallied Minnesota in a 6 2/3 innings without goals as the twins handed the Oakland Athletics Team their ninth straight loss in a 4-3 win on Sunday.
The Twins have swept three of their last five series and have won 14 of 17 games since the season began 4-8.
Minnesota star Byron Buxton has yet to play for the AL Central Leaders after a day out early. Putting it day in and day out due to the strain on the right hip is considered very low level.
Polanco, who netted a 1-0 win Saturday night, hit a single in the third inning to give Minnesota a 4-3 lead for good.
The Twins allowed only four runs in three games against Team A. The Minnesota Bullpen did not allow a run in 11 2/3 innings during the series, largely after starter Chris Baddack left the game in the third inning with right elbow inflammation.
From there, Cody Staschak (3-0), Caleb Thilbar, Joe Smith, Tyler Duffy and Emilio Bagan combined to eliminate two hits in the ball.
For the twins, Dominican Polanco scored 3-1 with two RBIs, Gary Sanchez 4-1 and Gilberto Celestino 3-3. Colombian Gio Orchila 3-0 with RBI. Puerto Rican Jose Miranda 4-1 with a running record and RBI.
In athletics, Panamanian Christian Betancourt 2-1. Venezuelan Elvis Andros 4-0, Dominican Ramon Laureano and Christian Bach.
