Twins Beat Baltimore To Win Series
The Twins won their second series of the year with a win Sunday afternoon. It took Minnesota until mid-May last season to accomplish the feat.
The Minnesota Twins continued to surprise Sunday with a 4-3 win over Baltimore at Camden Yards. The Twins are now 4-2 on the season and will play at Kansas City Monday.
JJ Hardy homered and Nick Markakis singled home a run in a three-run bottom of the second inning for Baltimore, giving the O’s a 3-0 lead.
Justin Morneau’s towering fly ball to center field fell in between a pair of Orioles in the top of the third to cut the Baltimore lead to 3-2.
In the top of the seventh inning, Chris Parmelee hit a pinch hit sacrifice fly to tie the game, and Aaron Hicks came through with an RBI single to give the Twins the lead for good.
Anthony Swarzak (1-0) earned the win with 1.1 innings of scoreless relief, and Glen Perkins got his second save of the year with a 1-2-3 ninth.
