Twins Win, Mauer Out? 02 Jul 14

Eduardo Nunez went 3-for-5 with a home run, two RBI and three runs scored as the Twins topped the Royals 10-2 in the middle of a three-game series at Target Field.  Joe Mauer and Sam Fuld also drove in two runs apiece for the Twins, who have won two of three since a five-game skid.  Ricky Nolasco tossed six innings of one-run ball for the win as he improved to 5-and-6.  Twins catcher Joe Mauer left last night’s win over the Royals with a strained oblique.  He will be re-evaluated today.  Mauer is hitting .271 with two homers and 28 RBI in 76 games this season. The Twins and Royals play the rubber match of their three-game series today at Target Field.  Kevin Correia gets the ball for Minnesota.  He is 4-and-9 with a 5.08 ERA in 16 starts.  KC will counter with left-hander Jason Vargas, who is 7-and-3 with a 3.53 ERA.
