Collmenter gets 11th win, D-backs beat Twins 6-2 23 Sep 14

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – Josh Collmenter pitched six strong innings for his career-best 11th win, Mark Trumbo homered and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the Minnesota Twins 6-2 Monday night to snap a six-game losing streak.

Trumbo’s two-run shot off Ricky Nolasco – his fourth homer in the last 11 games – capped a five-run fifth for the Diamondbacks, who are 7-11 in interleague play.

Collmenter has allowed two runs or fewer in his last six starts, matching the longest streak of his career. He’s 3-1 during that span.

Nearly all the hitters in Minnesota’s lineup faced Collmenter for the first time in their careers, and it showed as the Twins reached 90 losses for the fourth straight year since winning the AL Central in 2010.
