Nolasco throws 5 innings, Twins beat Marlins 4-2
Question of the Day
Nolasco, likely to start on opening day for the Twins, threw 74 pitches, 48 for strikes. The right-hander exited with a 3.27 spring ERA after allowing two runs on seven hits (all singles) and no walks. He struck out three.
“I think that’s why I was brought over here,” Nolasco said of the opening day assignment. “It’s nothing that’s not expected. It’s something I’ve done before and just continue to do throughout my career.”
Nolasco started on opening day the Marlins in 2009 and 2013.
“It’s just another game,” he said. “You don’t make too much about it. I don’t put too much thought into it. I just go out there and keep doing whatever I need to do. Go deep in the game and try to get us in the dugout to score some runs.”
Eduardo Escobar broke a 2-all tie with a two-out, two-run single in the seventh inning Minnesota.
Oswaldo Arcia added a wind-blown triple and a sacrifice fly for the Twins, who evened their spring record at 7-7-3.
Donovan Solano singled in his first two trips against Nolasco. Brian Bogusevic also had two hits for Miami.
Most Marlins regulars were in Panama this weekend for two games against the New York Yankees.
Marlins: Right-hander Kevin Slowey allowed two runs in five innings against his former team. Slowey is likely to open the year in a swingman role.
“They know me and they know what I’m going to do,” Slowey said. “I’m usually not going to walk guys, although I did walk one today.”
Marlins: Veteran second baseman Rafael Furcal remains day to day after reinjuring his left hamstring Saturday against the Nationals.
