      Miguel Sano delivers in pinch for Twins

      Rookie DH Miguel Sano wasn't in the starting lineup for the Twins on Wednesday, but he came through in a big way, hitting a pinch-hit home run in the 12th inning to give Minnesota a win and keep them in the AL wild-card hunt. Sano had been out the lineup for the last two days as he worked through a mini slump, but his 16th homer of the year, a shot to left, put the Twins ahead. He is now hitting .281 with 43 RBIs.

      Twins 3B Miguel Sano gets chance to rest hamstring injury

      Twins third baseman Miguel Sano was held out of the starting lineup for Thursday's game against the White Sox. Sano is trying to play through a hamstring injury, and he was rested Thursday since it was a day game after a night game. "It's a tough thing right now with him. I know he wants to play, and staying in the lineup from here on out is the most important part of the equation," manager Paul Molitor said, per MLB.com. "A day game following a night game heading into Houston isn't going to make a huge difference. I can't tell you exactly that. There's no way to measure how much 40 hours might help." The hamstring injury didn't seem to bother Sano on Wednesday, as he homered for a third straight game. The rookie third baseman has been on a nice power surge, homering eight times in his last 14 games and slugging .833 in that span. Since Aug. 5, Sano has a .323/.402/.742/1.144 slash line in his last 25 games. He has six doubles, 11 home runs and 28 RBI in that span.

      Twins DH Miguel Sano cranks out fifth home run in loss

      Twins rookie Miguel Sano had a nice night at the plate on Wednesday. Sano went 2 for 3, including his fifth home run of the season. Sano's two-run shot came in the fifth inning to cut the Blue Jays' lead down to two, but it wasn't enough to avoid the 9-7 loss. Sano, who drove in three runs on the night, had been hitless in his previous three contests prior to Wednesday. He still sports an impressive .278 batting average early on his career, however.
