Twins Vs. Cubs Final Score: Minnesota Dominates In 11-3 Game Two Victory

The Minnesota Twins kept up the run production from game one against the Chicago Cubs in game two, but their opponents weren't quite as able. Game one saw an 8-7 victory in favor of the Twins in the 10th inning, but game two was a blowout, with Minnesota guaranteeing a series victory on the back of their 11-3 win.

Scott Diamond moved to 5-1 on the season with six innings of seven-hit ball with no walks and no runs allowed. He also struck out five and boasts a 1.61 earned run average on the season after this quality start. Jeff Manship came in to pitch the ninth inning and was given a save for his efforts. Jeff Gray gave up the three runs to the Cubs in innings seven and eight.

Trevor Plouffe had four runs on the day. His first came in the second inning when he grounded out to third and scored Josh Willingham. His second and third runs came in the fourth when he hit a ground rule double to deep cente, scoring Justin Morneau and Ryan Doumit. His fourth and final run came in a solo homerun to centerfield in the fifth inning. Joe Mauer had three hits on the day and two runs batted in as well.

They'll play game three on Sunday as the Cubs try and avoid the sweep. The start time is 2:10 p.m. eastern.
