Twins - 7
O's - 1
Notes and Observations:
- Jair Jurrjens did himself no favors as he barely got out of the first inning after allowing three runs, two earned on two hits and three walks. That minor league contract Duquette signed him to looks even better now. "My timing today was way off," Jurrjens told the AP. "I wasn't finishing the ball, it was starting a ball and then finishing a ball. It wasn't looking like a strike and then finishing a ball."I think having been in bad habits for a couple of years. I just got to figure out how to get the good habits back, the good timing. Get that feel back."
- Kevin Gausman allowed a run on three hits over two innings of work. He struck out two.
- Catcher Chris Robinson went two-for-two but had a passed ball.
