Episode details

The Twins suffered a heartbreaking walk-off loss Thursday in Pittsburgh. The Twins held a 5-3 lead in the 8th after homers from Miguel Sanó, Eddie Rosario and Byron Buxton. Sergio Romo walked Jarrod Dyson in the 8th, who then stole both second and third base. He scored on a groundout to make it 5-4. Taylor Rogers came in to close the door in the 9th and couldn't do it. Colin Moran stuck his bat out and singled to left before Bryan Reynolds doubled down the left field line. With no outs and two on, Rogers simply couldn't recover. Kevin Newman pinch hit for JT Riddle and singled in two runs to walk off Minnesota after Gregory Polanco struck out. Polanco also hit a three-run homer off Kenta Maeda in the second inning. Maeda pitched 6 innings and allowed only those three runs.
