Trying to get Blue Jays back wasn’t enough because the Twins are chained up in additional roles | Pro IQRA News

Nick Gordon hit Homer from three runs and scored in the 10th inning for Minnesota after a pair of fouls by Toronto quarterback Danny Jansen gave the Twins a 6-5 win over the Blue Jays on Friday night.

Gordon, who had three hits in the match, was the auto sprinter to start the bottom 10th. Jordan Romano (3-3) hit Jake Cave on a low slide past Jansen, who threw hard into the first, allowing Cave to reach and moving Gordon to third.

Tim Beckham hit playmaker for third baseman Matt Chapman, who came home to try and score for Gordon. It’s possible Jansen would have gone out but he didn’t catch the ball cleanly.

“I was actually skating and watching the catcher, so I was really seeing the ball fall and I was screaming at the referee,” Gordon said. “I was like, ‘Safe, safe.’ So, I was hoping he would hear me.”

Toronto recovered from 5-0 down before losing for the fourth time in their last 16 games.

“I think everything lined up the way we wanted it and we didn’t do it in the end,” said interim manager John Schneider. “I love the way we play and I think it’s one game in the void. You try to smash it and move on.”

Michael Vollmer (4-4) left the bases loaded at the top of the 10th in his second appearance for Minnesota since getting it from Detroit.

The twins, who lost six out of nine, doubled their lead at AL Central to two games over the Cleveland and Chicago White Sox.

“Sometimes you have to fight a little,” Minnesota coach Rocco Baldele said. “Put the ball into play. Make the other team achieve something. Once there’s a player at second base, once there’s a player at third base, anything can really happen in this game if you give yourself the opportunity.”

The Blue Jays rallied in the ninth against the new closest twins Jorge Lopez, another acquisition on the trade deadline that was an All-Star in Baltimore. Bo Bichette and Danny Jansen sorted before Raimel Tapia blasted one solo in a shallow midfield.

On his Minnesota debut, Tyler Mahley became the first Tournament Twins player to finish six rounds since Sonny Gray went six rounds against Detroit on July 24.

Mahley allowed a one-stroke through the first four rounds before letting his guards down for Matt Chapman, Santiago Espinal and Vladimir Guerrero Jr., who extended his hitting streak to 16 games with a two-round blast to center in the sixth inning.

Obtained in the deadline from the Cincinnati Reds for three possibilities, Mahle allowed four runs and five strokes. Three house guards were not allowed in this season’s game.

“I was excited to play a meaningful game,” Mahley said. “I haven’t really done that all year. Excited to have my family here to see him.”

Homer Gordon’s fifth of the season finished fourth for four runs against former Twins player Jose Berrios, who gave up five runs in six strokes in 3 and 3 innings.
