Outfield misplay hurts Twins in 8-7 loss to Jays

TORONTO (AP) Twins manager Paul Molitor would prefer his team play aggressively rather than worrying about making mistakes.

That assertive attitude didn't pay off Saturday.

Melvin Upton Jr. hit an RBI triple past diving outfielder Max Kepler and continued home on a misplay in the eighth inning, completing Toronto's rally from a five-run deficit and lifting the AL East-leading Blue Jays over the Twins 8-7 Saturday.
