Postgame Twinsights: The Baltimore bunt that set up biggest blast

BALTIMORE -- Lost in a 33-hit afternoon was a bunt single for Baltimore's David Lough that should have given Ricky Nolasco a much-needed out in the sixth. Lough, who also sacrificed in the first, popped up his bunt this time along the third-base line. It was left to catcher Eric Fryer to race out from behind the plate and try to throw out Lough, which he couldn't. Adam Jones followed with a two-run double on an 0-2 pitch when Nolasco might have been able to work him more carefully with a base open, even though Nelson Cruz was due up next.

Postgame Twinsights: Ailing Ricky Nolasco toughs it out

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Here, at long last, was the pitcher the Twins thought they were signing last winter when they gave Ricky Nolasco a minimum of $49 million over four seasons. Not only did Nolasco spin seven shutout innings in what became a tough-to-swallow 2-1 loss to Kansas City. He also fought through a nasty flu bug on a night when the heat index at first pitch was 97 degrees. "He was fighting through the first three innings," Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said. "He said he felt miserable and was ready to call it a night. Then he started [...] The post Postgame Twinsights: Ailing Ricky...

Royals 2, Twins 1: Nolasco actually throws a great game, Perkins blows it

Oh what the H-E-double hockey sticks. After looking awful in his last couple starts, Ricky Nolasco turned it around tonight and had his best start ever as a Twin. Nolasco gave up only three hits over seven scoreless innings and looked to be in line for his first win since June 4th. Unfortunately, Glen Perkins COMPLETELY BLEW IT and the Twins lost instead. The first six innings or tonight's game moved pretty swiftly, thanks to Nolasco's and Royals starter Danny Duffy's strong outings. Scoring didn't get started until the top of the seventh. Brian Dozier led off the inning with a double, and...

Nolasco helped by Kansas City heat

Ricky Nolasco slated to pitch for the Twins Friday night

Twins starter is due to come off of the disabled list Friday. The news that Ricky Nolasco will be activated in time to start on Friday night puts the starting rotation back into flux. Without a roster move, the Twins are looking at a rotation of Phil Hughes, Tommy Milone, Trevor May, Yohan Pino, Kyle Gibson, and...yes, Nolasco makes six. Thursday is an off-day, allowing the team to re-set the rotation a little bit. Nolasco is Friday's probable pitcher, with Hughes and Milone slated to go Saturday and Sunday. After that we'd normally see May and Milone before finally coming around to Pino...

Twinsights: Elbow injury had Ricky Nolasco “kind of scared,” boyhood friend says

OAKLAND, Calif. -- Twins right-hander Ricky Nolasco (flexor pronator) made his second and final rehab start for Class A Cedar Rapids on Sunday afternoon. Nolasco, who was slated to throw about 75 pitches, gave up three earned runs on eight hits and no walks in 5 2/3 innings. The Twins’ Opening Day starter struck out six and gave up a double plus a third-inning homer to Shawon Dunston, son of the former big leaguer of the same name. Dunston came in with five career homers in 674 pro at-bats, but Nolasco remains on track to return to the Twins’ rotation next weekend at Target Field.......
