Manuel Margot, Twins blast Mariners 11-1

manuel margot

Manuel Margot doubled and matched a career high with five RBIs, and the Minnesota Twins cruised to an 11-1 win over the Seattle Mariners on Thursday afternoon in Minneapolis.

Max Kepler and Ryan Jeffers homered and drove in two runs apiece for Minnesota, which won three of four games in the series. Carlos Santana and Edouard Julien each drove in one run.

Luke Raley finished 2-for-4 with an RBI to lead Seattle at the plate. The Mariners managed only one extra-base hit, a double by Mitch Haniger.

Twins right-hander Pablo Lopez (4-2) limited Seattle hitters to one run on four hits in 6 1/3 innings. Lopez walked none and struck out 10, as he threw 61 of 100 pitches for strikes.

Mariners right-hander Logan Gilbert (3-1) endured his worst start of the season. After entering the day with nine runs allowed in 48 innings, he gave up eight runs on nine hits in four innings. He walked two and struck out four.

The Twins set the tone with a five-run first inning.

Kepler started the scoring with an RBI single. Three batters later, Margot stepped to the plate with the bases loaded and hit a double to left to drive in three more runs. Santana finished the big inning with an RBI single to score Margot.

The Mariners scored their lone run in the top of the second. Raley singled to right field to score Haniger, who reached on a leadoff double.

Jeffers hit a solo shot, his eighth homer of the season, to make it 6-1 in the bottom of the second.

Minnesota increased its lead to 8-1 in the fourth. Julien hit an RBI single, and Jeffers followed in the next at-bat with a sacrifice fly to left.

An RBI groundout by Margot made it 9-1 in the fifth.

In the seventh, Kepler led off the inning with his third homer of the season. Jose Miranda scored on a throwing error by Luis Urias later in the inning to make it 11-1.

Josh Staumont pitched a scoreless ninth in his Twins debut. The 30-year-old former Kansas City Royals reliever started the season on the injured list.
