Twins Vs. Orioles Final Score: Twins Go Up 2-0 In Series With 6-4 Win

The Minnesota Twins followed Monday's 19-7 win over the Baltimore Orioles with a game that was significantly closer but a victory all the same. The Twins bested the Orioles by a final score of 6-4, going up 2-0 in the four game series.

The Orioles struck first, going up 1-0 in the first, but Minnesota was able to answer in the bottom of the fourth with an RBI double from Jamey Carrol. Baltimore got back on top of the fifth with a three run home run from Adam Jones, but the Twins answered right back in the bottom of the inning with a two RBI single from Ryan Doumit and another RBI on a single by Brian Dozier. That left things tied 4-4.

The game was still tied in the bottom of the seventh when Carrol and Denard Span both reached on infield singles. Ben Revere and Joe Mauer each knocked in a run with a single and that was enough to give the Twins the game.

Neither pitching staff was stellar, with the two teams combining for 15 walks (eight from the Orioles, seven from the Twins.) Twins starter Samuel Deduno was denied his first win as he lasted only 4.1 innings, leaving after giving up six hits, four runs and walking five with five strikeouts. Alex Burnett gets the win for Minnesota and Jared Burton picks up his third save.

Game 3 in the series is Wednesday night, scheduled for 7:10 p.m. CT.
