MLB News: Carlos Correa’s 5 hits help Twins shred Rockies, 17-9

Added to Favorite


Carlos Correa had a career-high five hits and Carlos Santana ripped a bases-clearing double, powering the Minnesota Twins to a 17-9 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Wednesday afternoon in Minneapolis.

Royce Lewis and Willi Castro each homered to highlight their respective three-hit performances for Minnesota, which banged out a season-high 24 hits.

Jose Miranda and Christian Vazquez each belted a two-run double, and Santana and Kyle Farmer each added an RBI single as part of a seven-run eighth inning. Farmer also had an RBI single in a five-run first inning for the Twins, who saw every member of their starting lineup notch at least one hit and one RBI.

Pablo Lopez (6-6) benefited from Minnesota’s early offensive explosion to improve to 4-0 in five career starts against the Rockies. He allowed two runs on five hits and struck out five in five innings.

Colorado’s Ryan McMahon launched a solo homer for the second consecutive day, and Brenton Doyle and Jacob Stallings each had two hits and two RBIs. A two-run error by shortstop Correa and a double-play grounder trimmed Minnesota’s lead 10-8 in the eighth before the Twins’ late uprising sent the Rockies to their ninth loss in 12 games.

Doyle scored on Ezequiel Tovar’s sacrifice fly in the top of the first before Minnesota responded with a flourish. Byron Buxton’s RBI single forged a tie, Santana followed with a bases-clearing double off Austin Gomber (1-4) and came around to score on Farmer’s RBI single to center field.

McMahon and Castro each homered to lead off their respective team’s fourth inning.

The Twins extended their lead to 8-2 after Manuel Margot’s RBI double and Correa’s run-scoring single. That closed the book on Gomber, who was shredded for eight runs on 11 hits in three-plus innings.

Tovar scored on a groundout in the top of the sixth before Lewis responded with a mammoth homer in the bottom of the inning. Lewis deposited a first-pitch sinker from Angel Chivilli into the second deck in left-center field for his fifth homer of the season and second in his last three games.
