Twins blasted on field, off the field draft a SS 13 Jun 17

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Nelson Cruz drove in four runs, Mitch Haniger had four hits, and the Seattle Mariners started a series against Minnesota with a football score for the second time in a week to beat the Twins 14-3 last night. Danny Valencia and Mike Zunino hit back-to-back home runs in the eighth inning, the fifth such feat for the Mariners this season.

SECAUCUS, N.J. (AP) — The Minnesota Twins have selected California high school shortstop Royce Lewis with the No. 1 pick in the Major League Baseball draft. The announcement last night at MLB Network studios marks the third time the Twins have led off the draft, and first since they took hometown high school catcher Joe Mauer in 2001.
