Twins two back after loss to Blue JaysWisconsin News
- Twins blown-out in 8-1 loss to Toronto, now two games out of first place in AL Central.
Scott Baker allowed two lead-off homers and a bases-loaded double in the first two innings and the Twins never recovered in last night's 8-1 loss at Toronto.
They're now two games behind first-place Detroit in the AL Central heading into a three-game series against the Tigers at Comerica Park. It was revealed after the game that Baker has been bothered by soreness in his right elbow that's affected him while warming up. He'll get a cortisone shot and won't pitch again until after the All-Star Break, which starts on Monday.
The only run for the Twins came on a solo homer by Michael Cuddyer in the fourth inning. The Blue Jays rocked the Twins for five home runs, while Toronto starter Brett Cecil allowed four hits over seven innings.
