Molitor holds pregame meeting but Twins lose 8th straight

TORONTO (AP) In the final few weeks of a forgettable season, Twins manager Paul Molitor doesn't want his players hanging their heads.

Russell Martin and Justin Smoak each homered and drove in five runs as Toronto hammered Minnesota 15-8 Friday night, handing the Twins their eighth straight loss.

Trevor Plouffe hit a solo homer for the last-place Twins. Minnesota has been tagged for at least eight runs in four straight games.
