In addition to losing the game, the Twins lost Danny Santana to the DL with a sprained shoulder.

TwinsDaily Minor League Report (8/18): Alex Kirilloff leads Elizabethton to Victory Despite four wins from affiliates on Thursday, the games didn't produce a lot of stand-out performances. A couple key hits here and there, some solid relief work, and that's sort of how things worked out across the system.

If the season started 10 games ago, the Twins would have the second best record in the American League. Too bad the twins have been terrible for the better part of four months. To make things worse, the Twins sent struggling Byron Buxton to Rochester to make room for Trevor Plouffe who is activated from the Disabled List.

TwinsDaily Minor League Report (7/18): Park Goes Yard, and Gonsalvez Dazzles In baseball, and in life, the only constant is change. The Terry Ryan era has come to an end and with Rob Antony in charge, it will be an interesting couple of weeks until the trade deadline.
