MINNEAPOLIS—Not even a sore wrist could keep Seattle Mariners slugger Nelson Cruz from reaching the seats this weekend at Target Field. Cruz hit two solo home runs and Jesus Sucre continued his hot hitting since his recall from Triple-A with a two-run homer as the Seattle Mariners held on for a 4-3 win over the Minnesota Twins, who lost their 100th game and will finish with the league's worst record and the top pick in next year's draft.
MINNEAPOLIS—Early homers by Jorge Polanco and Miguel Sano helped the Minnesota Twins snap a seven-game losing streak on Saturday, as they never trailed in beating the Seattle Mariners 3-2. Minnesota, which has 99 losses, got seven solid innings from starter Tyler Duffey (9-11), who allowed just four hits and no walks. Seattle starter Ariel Miranda (5-2) allowed just three hits in four innings, but two of them cleared the fence. A trio of Mariners relievers retired the final 12 Twins batters in a row.
MINNEAPOLIS—Rodney Smith fueled Minnesota's power running game rushing for two touchdowns and 99 yards in the Gophers' 31-24 win over Colorado State on Saturday at TCF Bank Stadium in Minneapolis. The Gophers rushed for a total of 243 yards and four touchdowns, quarterback Mitch Leidner completed 16 of 20 passes for 174 yards and Minnesota was able to quash any every attempt the Rams had of pulling off an upset. And despite being in control most of the day, the Gophers never were able to put the Rams away.
MINNEAPOLIS—The Seattle Mariners posted a six-run seventh inning to open their three-game visit to Minnesota decisively, blasting past the struggling Twins 10-1 on Friday.
