Twins expected to be sellers at Major League Baseball trade deadline

Twins expected to be sellers at Major League Baseball trade deadline

Garcia, whom the Twins traded for from Atlanta, lasted 6 2/3 innings, giving up three runs on eight hits and struck out seven. Garcia, a free agent after the season, will be changing teams for the second time in less than a week; he joined Minnesota on Monday after the Braves dealt him, catcher Anthony Recker and cash considerations for a minor league pitching prospect.

Judge went 0 for 4 with two strikeouts and a walk, stranding five runners.

Sunday, he got the first two outs in the eighth before a walk and a single put two runners on.

Other trades • Kansas City, seeking to bolster its offense for a run at playoff spot, acquired outfielder Melky Cabrera from the Chicago White Sox for two pitching prospects.

The A's lost their fifth straight game, and manager Bob Melvin remained stuck on 999 career victories. Zack Littell goes to the Twins, and his minor-league numbers are great - he's 14-1 this season in Single-A and Double-A with a 1.87 ERA.

Brandon Kintzler finished for his 28th save in 32 chances as the Twins won for just the third time in their last 17 games at the Coliseum. He'll face Daniel Gossett with a 9:10 p.m. first pitch. Eddie Rosario and Jason Castro each pitched in a double while Brian Dozier, Max Kepler, Eduardo Escobar and Robbie Grossman each contributed a base hit in defeat.

Rajai Davis crushed a walk-off homer off Taylor Rogers in the bottom of the ninth inning Saturday night for a 5-4 Oakland win to spoil what was lining up to be a second consecutive Minnesota victory.

Like they did in this series' first two games, the Minnesota Twins sprinted to an early lead before trying to run out the 27-out clock. Second baseman Adam Rosales made a strong throw to home to complete an 8-4-2 putout.

He may end up as a 5th starter, but Enns would be an excellent guy out of the bullpen in a multiple-inning lefty role, something few teams have the luxury of being able to play.

Matt Holliday, who hit a game-ending groundout against Alex Colome, was 0 for 5 with two strikeouts and stranded six runners. The road trip has been one big meltdown, as the Twins have scored just two runs following the fifth inning. The fact that he's a ground ball pitcher - 56.3 percent for his career - should play well in Yankee Stadium.

After a one game absence, Alonso will step back into a starting role tonight. Prior to the Midsummer Classic, he was 2-7 with a 4.55 ERA in 16 starts. Buxton initially landed on the DL on July 15 with a groin injury. "He's pitched in St. Louis where there's been big expectations, so we're excited that we got him". A's RHP Kendall Graveman (strained right shoulder) is scheduled to make another rehab start Saturday for Triple-A Nashville.

"Yeah, Bartolo, he's one of a kind", Melvin said. INF/OF Chad Pinder (strained left hamstring) will likely be activated from the disabled list on Monday, Melvin said.
