TWINS 4, ORIOLES 3
Kyle Gibson pitched six sharp innings, Willians Astudillo drove in two runs and Minnesota held off Baltimore for a three-game sweep.
After hitting 11 home runs in a doubleheader Saturday, the Twins used a different approach to secure their ninth straight victory over Baltimore. Minnesota failed to go deep, Nelson Cruz scored after being hit by a pitch and a botched fly ball led to a pair of unearned runs.
With closer Blake Parker ailing, Taylor Rogers gave up an RBI double to Jonathan Villar in the bottom of the ninth before securing his third save.
Gibson (1-0) gave up two runs and five hits, walked none and struck out six. The right-hander retired the last eight batters he faced.
Baltimore starter Dylan Bundy (0-3) allowed four runs, two earned, and seven hits in six innings.
