Nolasco stymied the Royals over seven shutout innings Tuesday, yielding three hits and a walk while striking out six batters. He didn't factor into the decision in the 2-1 loss.
Nolasco's finest outing as a Twin ultimately went for naught, as closer Glen Perkins surrendered a walk-off two-run homer to Alex Gordon, spoiling the shutout bid. The 31-year-old is still sitting on a disastrous 5.62 ERA on the season, but with a few more solid outings down the stretch, the Twins will probably feel a little better about their $49 million investment heading into 2015.
