MINNEAPOLIS -- Scott Baker and two relievers combined on a seven-hitter as the Twins edged the Dodgers 1-0 yesterday afternoon at Target Field.
Baker struck out nine while scattering six hits and a walk over seven-and-a-third innings for the win. Matt Capps recorded the final three outs for his 13th save. Rubby De La Rosa allowed just one run over seven frames to take the tough-luck loss for Los Angeles. Tsuyoshi Nishioka drove in the lone run with a first-inning groundout. Ben Revere went 2-for-3 and scored for Minnesota, which won the final two games of the series after losing 15-0 in the opener.
The Twins begin a three-game series with the Brewers at Target Field on Friday.
Minnesota Twins’ outfielder Delmon Young has no ligament damage in the ankle he sprained last Saturday night in Milwaukee. Young underwent an MRI yesterday – and it showed that he had some swelling and bone bruise, but the ligaments appear to look good. Young was hurt while sliding into the left field wall as he tried to catch a long fly from Yuniesky Betancourt – who had an inside-the-park home run on that play. Trainers say Young can put his full weight on his ankle. But the Brewers won’t be seeing him during their series in Minneapolis this weekend, because he’s on the 15-day disabled list. Young is expected to get off the DL on July 11th.
