Wallner Stars Again As Twins Dump White Sox – Brospar Daily News

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Matt Wallner’s season-ending call-up to his hometown team is a September for the 24-year-old to remember, even as the Minnesota Double The City team has withdrawn from the competition.

Werner hit a career-high 3-pointer, Gio Ursierra and Jack Cave each hit three hits, and the Twins beat Chicago 7-4 on Wednesday night to give the White Sox their eighth straight lose.

Jose Miranda added an RBI double for the Twins, and the White Sox are tied for second at the AL Central, 76-79, after finishing third over the past 19 days. Cleveland has beaten them the past three weeks to clinch the division title with 10 days left on the schedule.

After Cave’s RBI single put the Twins in the second inning, Werner followed with two doubles on the right field line that gave them the lead forever.

“He threw hard, hit the ball hard and ran fast,” Twins starter Josh Winder said. “He’s a fun player and it’s fun to watch him grow and learn at this level.”

Werner, a Minnesota Laker who was selected with the 39th overall pick in the 2019 Southern Mississippi State draft, hit a two-run homer on Lance Lynn on Tuesday. He homered in Shane Bieber’s first career game.

“The results so far have been encouraging. In terms of numbers, I really don’t have any ideas. Just trying to feel comfortable in the box,” said Werner, who has an OPS of 0.841 in 12 games.

Werner scored an RBI infield single in the fifth inning when his grounder was scooped by José Abreu and the first baseman hesitated after considering pitching home to try to get Ushera decision. It’s too late to try to tag Wallner.

The Guards have an 11-game lead over the Twins and the White Sox, two of the most disappointing teams in baseball this season.

“You have nothing to say. You have to put it behind you and come back tomorrow and do better,” White Sox acting manager Miguel Cairo said.

The Mariners ultimately eliminated the Twins and the White Sox from the wild-card round when Seattle beat Texas late Wednesday.

percentage point

Minnesota’s Luis Arraez went 5-2 on RBIs with a .3133 average in batting. League leader Aaron Judge went .3134 on 4-for-1 shooting. He hit his 61st homer for the New York Yankees, tying the AL single-season record.

“I just try to do my best. I just want to play,” Arraez said. “I just want to feel good. If I feel good, I think I’ll get a lot of clicks.”

Arraez and Boston’s Xander Bogaerts (.3087) are the only ones with a legal chance to stop Judge from winning the Triple Crown.

“Every time you hit the ball straight, you don’t get hit, but he’s hitting really well right now,” manager Rocco Baldelli said. The way he swings the bat, he’s going to have a good chance at that.”

for beginners

Winder didn’t play well after Bailey Ober had a career-high 10 strikeouts and 7 1/3 innings in Tuesday’s 4-0 win over the Twins.

The rookie right-hander was pulled with two outs in the fifth to lead 5-3 after Abreu’s RBI single. Winder hit six batters without a walk, while Caleb Thielbar (4-2) had four outs for the win.

Johnny Cotto (7-10) lost the White Sox’s fourth straight start for 5 2/3 innings with six surrenders. He gave up 10 hits, as Lynn did on Tuesday.

Urshela, Cave and Wallner — batting fifth, sixth and seventh, respectively — went 10-8 with five runs, four RBIs and two walks.

“They just hit the ball outside the strike zone. I don’t know how,” Cairo said.

White Sox: 3B Yoan Moncada, who missed the game with a bruised bone in his right foot, is undergoing an X-ray after hitting himself with a foul ball on Tuesday night.

Twins: 2B Jorge Polanco, who missed the past 30 games with left knee inflammation, shortened rehab assignments two weeks ago with further discomfort, could be shut down for the rest of the season, Baldley says .
