BALTIMORE (AP) — Ryan Mountcastle homered twice, and Austin Hays hit a home run with his bat and saved a run with his arm as the Baltimore Orioles outlasted the Minnesota Twins 5-3.
It was announced before the game that Minnesota manager Rocco Baldelli and second baseman Luis Arraez were out after testing positive for COVID-19. A team spokesman said Baldelli, Arraez and right-hander Dylan Bundy tested positive Thursday. Bundy pitched Wednesday. Bench coach Jayce Tingler will manage the Twins in the interim.
Carlos Correa may have a broken finger after he was struck by a pitch in the seventh inning. The Twins said after the game that preliminary imaging showed the potential for a non-displaced fracture of Correa’s right middle finger. Correa is expected to have a CT scan Friday. The team will confirm a diagnosis then.
Minnesota comes home to begin a new series against Oakland tonight. 7:10 p.m. first pitch on 950 KWAT.
