La Tortuga’s Revenge has proven to be a hit.
Willians Astudillo, sent to Triple-A Rochester after the Twins’ loss on Friday, spent the past two days punishing minor league pitching.
Astudillo, nicknamed “La Tortuga,” (the Turtle), went 3-for-4 with three RBIs, a run and a home run in the Red Wings’ 5-3 victory over Pawtucket on Sunday.
Astudillo went 3-for-4 with an RBI and a walk in Rochester’s 6-2 win Saturday at Pawtucket. He started in right field on Saturday and played catcher on Sunday and at the rate he’s going he won’t be in Triple-A much longer.
