Astros dismantle Twins 17-6

Again, the Astros took the Twins to the woodshed with a 17-6 win Wednesday afternoon to pick up the three-game sweep.

Like the theme in the two previous games, the Astros offense destroyed the Twins bullpen.

Hector Santiago would toss six innings, giving up six runs, but once he left, the Astros offense kicked into overdrive. To start the seventh inning, seven batters reached base and five would score before a single out would get recorded, in total the offense would six during the frame.

By the ninth inning, the Twins had waved the white flag inserting catcher Chris Gimenez to pitch the final inning and even he could not escape the Astros offense as he allowed a two-run homer to Marwin Gonzalez.

George Springer and Evan Gattis both collected four hits each.

During the series with the Twins, the Astros offense scored 40 runs.
