Twins rookie is triple threat
Eddie Rosario‘s two-run triple in the ninth inning broke a 1-1 tie yesterday and the Twins went on to defeat the Astros, 3-2. Rosario, who made his big-league debut in May, has 11 triples in 99 games. Prior to Rosario, the most recent players to hit at least 11 triples through their first 100 major-league games were Juan Uribe (15, from 2001 to 2002) and Juan Samuel (12, from 1983 to 1984).
