Twins pitcher strikes out four batters in an inning

May 9, 2016

Minnesota Twins pitcher Tyler Duffey fanned nine batters over seven innings against the White Sox Sunday, including a rare four-strikeout inning in the seventh. 

Duffey opened the inning by striking out Brett Lawrie. Avisail Garcia went down swinging on just three pitches, but reached base on a wild pitch that catcher Juan Centeno couldn't corral. 

A Dioner Navarro double allowed Garcia to score, but Duffey responded by striking out Austin Jackson, intentionally walking Adam Eaton, and ringing up Jimmy Rollins on seven pitches to end the inning.

The Twins only managed to score a single run, and Duffey picked up his second loss of the season.
