Newest Twin Closes The Deal; Twins Win 4-3
BALTIMORE (AP) — Kurt Suzuki hit a two-run single in the eighth inning to cap a comeback against All-Star reliever Darren O'Day and carry the Minnesota Twins past the Baltimore Orioles 4-3 Friday night.
Baltimore was 51-1 when leading after seven innings, and O'Day (5-2) entered with a 1.15 ERA and a run of 11 straight scoreless appearances.
A walk, a pop single down the right-field line and a hit-by-pitch loaded the bases for Eddie Rosario, who delivered a fly to right. All three runners advanced, and Suzuki followed with a bloop past the drawn-up infield.
Casey Fien (3-5) worked 1 2/3 innings, Trevor May pitched the eighth and Kevin Jepsen struck out the side for his sixth save, the first since coming to Minnesota from Tampa Bay in a July 31 trade.
