MINNEAPOLIS -- The Minnesota Twins will try to build on one of their most productive road trips of the season when they open a four-game series against the Houston Astros at Target Field on Monday night.In that attempt, the Twins will also get back third baseman Trevor Plouffe, who has missed the last month with a fractured rib.The Twins went 5-2 on a seven-game trip that began with three wins in a four-game series against Central Division-leading Cleveland last week at Progressive Field. Minnesota also won two of three over Tampa Bay over the weekend, capped by third baseman Miguel Sanos two homer afternoon in a 6-3 win on Sunday.While Sano was able to get going against the Rays, Twins skipper Paul Molitor will be forced to shuffle his lineup around with the return of Plouffe, a third baseman who has also seen time at first base this season.Plouffes 2016 campaign has been a disappointment thus far; the slugger has just seven homers after hitting 22 last year and has a career low .283 on-base percentage. But he was swinging well in 12 games before the injury, hitting .326 with a pair of homers and seven RBI over the final two weeks of June. He also hit .316 with a homer and two RBI in five rehabilitation games with Triple-A Rochester before being activated following the win in Tampa on Sunday.To make room for Plouffe, the Twins sent down struggling center fielder Byron Buxton, who entered the season as one of the top prospects in all of baseball.After an underwhelming first taste of big-league action last season, Buxton hasnt fared much better this time around, hitting just .193 with 80 strikeouts in 197 at-bats in 2016.All I can tell you is that I like having people like Byron around here, Molitor said. Hes got to go down there and work on some physical things, mechanical things, and hopefully get a little confidence back.The Astros come to town off a 5-3 loss to Texas in Houston on Sunday, a game that saw the Astros rally from three runs down late before allowing a pair of runs in the top of the 11th inning.Texas won two of three against Houston over the weekend, helping the Rangers increase their lead to 7 1/2 games over the Astros for first place in the American League West. The Seattle Mariners, who have won three-straight games, also moved ahead of Houston for second place in the division.Any time I leave this podium after a loss, I hate it, Astros manager A.J. Hinch said, according to MLB.com. I dont care what team is on the other side. I dont care what division theyre in, what league theyre in, how the loss happened. ... Im not naive. I know that those games (against the Rangers) are going to be magnified ... but if we had lost to an unnamed team not named the Rangers, I would be just as disappointed.Houston native Tyler Duffey will take the mound for Minnesota in game one of the series. Duffey, who attended Bellaire High School and pitched for Rice University, has given up at least five runs in each of his last three starts and could pitch his way out of the rotation with another clunker on Monday.Duffey, a righty, allowed two runs on six hits and a walk in 6 2/3 innings in a no decision last season in Houston in his only career start against his hometown team.Collin McHugh will go for the Astros, coming off a quality start against Toronto in which he allowed three runs in six innings of work. The right-hander allowed four runs on seven hits and two walks in 5 2/3 innings against the Twins at Minute Maid Park on May 3 but earned the win victory.Anthony Davis Jersey . Scott Kazmir allowed four hits in seven shutout innings, Michael Brantley hit a two-run homer in a three-run first inning and the Indians maintained their hold on an AL wild-card spot with a 4-1 win over the Houston Astros on Saturday night.

Andreas Johnson had a goal and two assists while Jacob de la Rose also scored for Sweden (2-0-0). Esa Lindell and Rasmus Ristolainen replied for Finland (1-1-0) Lindell opened the scoring for Finland just 41 seconds into the game, but the hosts quickly regained their composure and tied the score less than four minutes later on Wennbergs first of the game. ETwaun Moore Pelicans Jersey . Goals from Jerome Boateng, Franck Ribery and Thomas Mueller extended Bayerns unbeaten run to a record 37 matches. "This record is incredible," Bayern coach Pep Guardiola said. Jrue Holiday Jersey .5 million, one-year contract on Friday. Hawkins, who turns 41 in December, will compete with Rex Brothers for the closers role at spring training.MARINA BAY, Singapore -- Nico Rosberg beat Max Verstappen to the fastest time in the final practice session for the Singapore Grand Prix by just 0.059s in a session that will be best remembered for a track invasion by a lizard.Rosberg hooked up a relatively clean lap in his Mercedes to set a 1:44.352 on ultra-softs, with Verstappen just 0.059s slower on his quick lap. Rosbergs time was marginally slower than his best effort in Fridays second practice, suggesting there is still plenty more to come from Mercedes in this evenings qualifying session.Lewis Hamilton had shown a glimpse of that in the first sector by clocking a time 0.25s quicker than teammate Rosberg but locked his brakes heading into Turn 7 and ran wide. As a result, he finished the session eighth fastest based on a time he set on the super-soft tyres.Kimi Raikkonen was third fastest for Ferrari, 0.508s off the pace of Rosberg, with Daniel Ricciardo a further 0.043s adrift after getting stuck behind a slow-moving Manor on his fast lap. Sebastian Vettel had to settle for fifth fastest after a mistake on the exit of Turn 7 saw him straddle the kerb and lose time, leaving him a total of 0.752s off Rosbergs benchmark.But it was an unusual incident under a red flag ten minutes into the session that really stood out. The session had been stopped in order to clear debris left by Pascal Wehrleins Manor after he damaged his rear wing against the crash barrier at Turn 11.dddddddddddd In order to allow marshals to clear the debris from the track, the cars filtered back to the pits but as they did so they were were joined by an unusual visitor.Theres a giant lizard on the track! Max Verstappen said over his radio as a metre-long reptile scurried across the track at the exit of Turn 3. It stopped briefly in the middle of the track to let the Red Bull pass before running for the safety of the crash barrier on the others side of road. You came face to face with Godzilla then, came the reply from Verstappens mechanic as he cruised back to the pits. Once the circuit was clear of both debris and lizards, the session resumed with just a five-minute delay.By the chequered flag, Force Indias Nico Hulkenberg finished sixth fastest ahead of Daniil Kvyat in the Toro Rosso, Hamilton, Carlos Sainz in the second Toro Rosso and Valtteri Bottas Williams. Sergio Perez was 11th fastest ahead of Fernando Alonso, Esteban Gutierrez, Felipe Massa, Kevin Magnussen and Jenson Button.Felipe Nasr finished 17th ahead of Romain Grosjean, who again reported difficulties under braking. Marcus Ericsson was 19th ahead of Jolyon Palmer and the two Manors, which were over 4.5s off Rosbergs ultimate pace. ' ' '
