Twins send Lewis down to minors to make room for Correa coming off injured list

It was a late night Tuesday for the Minnesota Twins as they took on the Oakland Athletics on the road.

Royce Lewis and Gary Sánchez each hit solo home runs for the Twins. However, the Athletics had a better night, scoring three runs in the seventh and ultimately beating Minnesota 5-2.

After the game, Minnesota manager Rocco Baldelli said Lewis will be sent down to the minors to make room for shortstop Carlos Correa coming off the injured list.

Correa has missed the last 11 games after suffering a right finger contusion on May 5 at Baltimore.

Lewis made his MLB debut on May 6 and has hit .308 with 2 home runs, 4 doubles, 5 RBI, 5 runs, a .325 on-base percentage and a .889 OPS in 11 games with the Twins.

The teams play again Wednesday in California; first pitch is just after 2:30 p.m.
