In the top of the second inning tonight, the Yankees hit two triples.
- One of those triples was hit by Brian Roberts.
– In the bottom of the inning, the Yankees turned a triple play.
— It’s the first time that a team has hit two triples AND turned a triple play since at least 1939.
—- The last three triple plays the Yankees have turned (04/22/10, 04/12/13, 04/17/14) have all come in April, and all with CC Sabathia on the mound.
Adam Wainwright hit an infield single.
Robinson Canó hit his first home run of the year.
- This gives him as many home runs as Gio Gonzalez.
Andrelton Simmons struck out tonight.
- It’s the first time he’s struck out in 52 PAs (h/t @Whitey_83).
In the bottom of the eighth of game two of their double-header, the Twins scored six runs, and the first four of those without a hit, or, technically, without an at-bat.
- They scored those runs because Toronto’s pitchers gave up eight walks and three wild pitches.
– Every Twin except for Eduardo Nuñez walked at least once in the inning.
— Josmil Pinto walked twice. Via @sethsamuelson, Pinto had four walks in nine plate appearances today; he has six walks in 83 PAs all of last season.
—- Sergio Santos threw 16 pitches. Four were strikes.
—– According to our friends at Baseball Reference, he’s the first pitcher to throw three wild pitches and not record an out.
