Twins prospect Kirilloff notches three hits in 9-8 loss

Alex Kirilloff and Mitch Garver tallied three hits apiece, but the Minnesota Twins fell 9-8 to the Toronto Blue Jays on Sunday afternoon.

Kirilloff, named the Twins’ Minor League Player of the Year last season, raised his spring-training batting average to .364.

The Twins led 4-1 early on, but Toronto rallied for five runs off Fernando Romero in the third inning. Romero faced five hitters and didn’t record a single out.

Ehire Adrianza and Tyler Austin homered for the Twins. Both have mashed three dingers in spring training.

Minnesota totaled 13 hits on the afternoon.


The Twins host the Boston Red Sox on Monday afternoon.
