Week 8 Power Rankings: Are Twins for real?

The Twins are approaching June atop the AL Central. They've spent more days in first place in this young season than they did from 2011-16 combined.

Astros take lead in 8th on dramatic double (0:38)

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

Wow, what an eighth inning for the Astros against the Twins. Trailing 8-2, they scored 11 runs, tied for second-most in an inning in franchise history. They had eight hits, two walks and a hit by pitch, with Carlos Beltran finishing off the rally with a three-run homer. The Twins did not use their closer. I guess Brandon Kintzler will be rested for Tuesday.

Twins CF Byron Buxton left Monday's game vs. the Astros with a lacerated ring finger on his right hand. He appeared to have suffered the injury diving for a ball in the outfield.

ESPN Staff  

The Twins are expected to call up RHP Drew Rucinski on Monday, according to Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press. Rucinski boasts a 2.95 ERA over 18 1/3 innings in Triple-A. He has made one appearance for the Twins this season.

Real or not? MLB's filthiest pitch of the year

The honor could belong to Jose Berrios, who unleashed a nasty curveball for a called strike against the Orioles' Mark Trumbo on Wednesday.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Ervin Santana has a 1.80 ERA in 10 starts this season. Since the franchise moved to Minnesota in 1961, only two Twins pitchers had an ERA that low through their first 10 starts of a season: Francisco Liriano (1.36 in 2006) and Scott Erickson (1.63 in 1991), according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

Twins 1B Joe Mauer and C Jason Castro are both out of the starting lineup Wednesday vs. the Orioles. Kennys Vargas gets the nod at first, and Chris Gimenez will catch.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Don't look now, but Ervin Santana is off to one of the hottest starts we've ever seen. It's been more than 60 years since a pitcher shut down batters with such regularity through his first 10 starts of a season.
