Atlanta beats up Minnesota


ATLANTA — The Minnesota Twins are mired in a terrible slump.

They won’t have Vance Worley to blame anymore.

The Twins dropped their eighth in a row, losing to the Atlanta Braves 8-3 on Wednesday, and immediately demoted Worley to the minors after another dismal outing.

The right-hander gave up three homers, including Evan Gattis’ grand slam, and left after just 3 2-3 innings. Worley’s record dropped to 1-5 and his ERA climbed to 7.21.
