Twins' Tommy Milone unable to hang on to lead in loss Thursday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Twins starter Tommy Milone was roughed up a bit in his outing against the Rays on Thursday. The left-hander allowed five runs (four earned) on eight hits over 5 1/3 innings, as the Twins lost by a score of 5-4. 

Milone (6-4, 3.86 ERA) got off to a bad start, as he allowed the Rays to score twice in the first inning, including a solo home run by Logan Forsythe.

The Twins rallied to take a 4-2 lead over the next few innings. But Milone gave up another run in the fifth and two more in the sixth.

Milone last pitched on Sunday, working the 12th inning and picking up his first-career save in a 4-3 win over the Orioles. In three starts since returning from the disabled list, Milone is 1-1 with a 4.93 ERA

Twins closer Glen Perkins dealing with back spasms
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Twins closer Glen Perkins has missed the last two games due to back spasms, and his return to the bullpen remains up in the air, per the St. Paul Pioneer Press

"It's frustrating getting a cortisone shot, coming back and having my back lock up," Perkins said. "It isn't how I planned things. It's been a crappy week."

Perkins felt his back tightening up Sunday, but he went out and pitched. Since then, he's been undergoing heat and ice treaments. Kevin Jepsen is 3-for-3 in save situations in Perkins' absence.

by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Twins SP Ervin Santana gets roughed up in no-decision Tuesday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Twins starter Ervin Santana struggled and did not last long in his outing against the Rays on Tuesday. The right-hander allowed five runs on eight hits over just 2 2/3 innings. He was able to escape with a no-decision however, as the Twins held on for an 11-7 victory.

The Twins gave Santana a 3-0 lead before he even took the mound, but he allowed two runs in the second inning and three more in the third before being pulled from the game.

Santana has now gone six starts without a win. Over those six outings, he has given up at least four runs five times, giving him a 9.12 ERA over that stretch.
