"Down 5-2 in the fourth, the Twins got 5 1/3 shutout innings from Cody Stashak, Brusdar Graterol, and Trevor May, who allowed just one hit and no walks to the game’s final 17 batters. Graterol, a hard-throwing rookie who is bucking for a role as 2019’s version of Francisco Rodriguez, struck out three of the six men he faced. He needed just 25 pitches to get through his two innings, and looked for all the world like a devastating late-inning weapon."
