Correa 2 hits in return, small crowd as Twins top A’s


OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Carlos Correa went 2 for 4 with an RBI double in his return from a stint on the injured list caused by a bruised middle finger on his right hand, and the Minnesota Twins seat a season high for runs in a 14-4 rout of the Oakland Athletics. Correa was reinstated from the 10-day injured list after missing 11 games due to an injury sustained when a pitch hit him while he gripped the bat during a swing.

Correa talks about getting back into the lineup:

Gary Sánchez went 2 for 4 with a double and three RBIs. Luis Arráez, Ryan Jeffers and Gilberto Celestino each drove in two runs.

Twins manager Rocco Baldelli on the game:

Minnesota has an off day today before traveling to Kansas City to begin a three-game weekend series on 950 KWAT.
