Miguel Sano's three-run homer helps Twins sweep Orioles
May 27, 2021
Michael Pineda and Jorge Lopez had remarkably similar, yet distinctly divergent, outings on Wednesday. Both pitched six strong innings, with Pineda allowing three hits in his return from the injured list, and Lopez just four in his 10th start for the Orioles. Each pitcher made one major mistake, and it sailed out of the park.
The difference: Two Twins were on base when Miguel Sano connected against Lopez. Nobody was on base when Trey Mancini took Pineda deep.
Nobody ever is when Pineda is doing the Big Mike Dance.
