Twins Vs. Athletics: Minnesota Completes Sweep Of Oakland With 4-0 Win

Don't look now but the Minnesota Twins have gone streaking and this time it's in the right direction. Coming off of a five-game losing streak over the course of two series against Central Division opponents, the Twins managed to complete a three-game sweep of the Oakland Athletics with a 4-0 win at Target Field on Wednesday afternoon.

Francisco Liriano recorded his first win of the season by only allowing three hits over six innings and striking out nine in the process. Left fielder, Josh Willingham was by-and-far the offensive player of the game registering three RBI on two hits, one of which was a two-run homerun in the fifth inning.

Tyson Ross was tagged with the loss, allowing four earned runs on six hits in five innings pitched. The Oakland offense was held to only three hits and failed to register a single hit against Minnesota relievers, Alex Burnett and Jeff Gray.
