Athletics-Twins Preview

(AP) -- The Minnesota Twins wasted little time getting back in a groove at the plate and back in the win column following the end to a five-game run.

The Twins will next try to reach a mark they haven't seen in five years Thursday against the Oakland Athletics while aiding Ricky Nolasco's attempt to build on his victorious return from the disabled list.

Minnesota (15-13) was held to five singles in a 2-1 loss to Oakland (12-17) on Tuesday, snapping its longest win streak in two seasons, but rebounded with a 13-0 rout Wednesday that featured 12 hits. Eddie Rosario homered on the first pitch he saw as a major leaguer and Eduardo Escobar went 3 for 4 with five RBIs.
