Twins 8, Astros 0: Astros steamrolled by Twins' Santana and Gibson

Brad Rempel-USA TODAY Sports

The Astros fell and couldn't get back up against Twin's Kyle Gibson. Danny Santana drives in five for Minnesota.

Asking for a friend, using three pitchers before the fifth inning is a bad thing - right? Yes? Okay, good to know.

Scott Feldman simply didn't have his command today, and Bo Porter knew it. He started off the second by hitting Josh Willingham. Feldman would walk two in the inning and giving up one hit. The Astros defense let Feldman down in the second, Matt Dominguez and Marwin Gonzalez had a throwing error to extend the inning. Danny Santana started his RBI rampage with two in the first on a single to right. Bo Porter had seen enough from Feldman after 1.2 inning and three runs scored.

Paul Clemens replaced Feldman, and did Paul Clemens like things. As a result, the Twins were up by seven at the end of the forth. Danny Santana collected five RBIs in the game on two singles and double.

Kyle Gibson held the Astros to three hits and three walks in the game over seven innings. The Astros weren't able to construct an offensive threat until Gibson left the game, but still couldn't get a run across in the eight with men on the corners.

The sooner we can turn the page the better. The Astros and Twins play in the rubber game at one tomorrow, Collin McHugh faces Samuel Deduno.
