MINNESOTA — The series opener between the Philadelphia Phillies (30-42) and Minnesota Twins (22-48) was the first game in Target Field history in which both opposing teams scored double digits in runs, according to ESPN Stats & Info.
The Twins' offense put together a season-high 14-run output.
And yet, the Phillies lost their eighth consecutive game despite putting together a 14-hit, 10-run performance with five extra-base hits — four being home runs that accounted for four-fifths of their runs.
Right-hander Aaron Nola lost his third consecutive decision as the Phillies fell to a season-high 12 games under the .500 mark. The team has lost 12 of their last 13 games and 25 of their last 31.
