Jorge Polanco was 5-5 with a pair of RBI and a pair of runs scored as the Twins routed the Blue Jays 9-1 to complete the series sweep and take the season series
- The Twins opened the scoring in the top of the 1st as Max Kepler scored on a sac fly by Eddie Rosario
- The Twins added a par of runs on a two run jack by Jorge Polanco to right-center; also scoring Kepler
- The Twins added a pair of runs in the top of the 3rd as CJ Cron whacked a two-run shot to right into the Twins bullpen; also scoring Rosario
- Trent Thornton pitching line: 2IP 7H 5R (all earned) 2BB 1K 63 pitches (37 for strikes)

- The Blue Jays got on the board in the bottom of the 5th as Billy McKinney crushed a solo blast to right
- The Twins added two more runs in the top of the 6th as Rosario smashed a 2-run bomb to right also scoring Polanco
- Kyle Gibson pitching line: 6IP 2H 1R (earned) 1BB 11K 88 pitches (62 for strikes)
- final score: Twins 9 Blue Jays 1
- Trent Thornton had a real ugly start after such a strong performance five days ago. He was lit up for 5 runs on 7 hits and a pair of walks. Thornton managed to escape a bases loaded situation in the 1st ceding just a single run, but he made 2 mistake pitches and both landed for home runs. The Twins are an up and coming team that is looking like they are much closer to a playoff berth than Toronto at the moment. Will Thornton ever get his first career win? After today's start, he is 0-4 with a 5.06 ERA.
- The Blue Jays were officially 0-1 with RISP. Aside from Billy McKinney smacking one over the wall in right and Freddy Galvis advancing to second on a passed ball, no one else got to second base.
- Strikeouts are still a major problem. 14 Blue Jays struck out today. How much longer will Atkins let things go before firing someone or making a roster move? At this point, you might as well call up Cavan Biggio. I mean, it's not like he can possibly do worse than this lineup.
- Up next, after an off-day that is sorely needed to rest the bullpen, the Blue Jays start a three game series against the White Sox looking to snap a five game losing streak. Righty Clay Buchholz will be looking to bounce back from a rough start in Texas. The White Sox will counter with righty Dylan Covey, who only Brandon Drury has faced. The Blue Jays won the season series 4-2 last season.
