The Minnesota Twins (63-75) lost their fourth straight game, falling to the Astros 5-2 Tuesday at Minute Maid Park in Houston.

Houston got off to another quick start, scoring four runs in the first inning off Minnesota starting pitcher Trevor May. May wouldn't see the second inning.

The Twins made it interesting in the second, loading the bases -- but leaving them that way without scoring a run.


Minnesota managed a run in the third, and another in the ninth, but it was too little, too late.

Miguel Sano was injured sliding into second base, and needed to be carted off the field in the second inning. X-rays were negative, and he's listed as day-to-day with a bruise.
