Twins Take Second Straight From Astros
Brian Dozier came through in the clutch for a second straight night in the Twins 6-4 win over Houston at Target Field Saturday. Dozier doubled to right in the seventh inning to tie the game and spark a Twins rally.
Rookie Kyle Gibson was shaky for Minnesota, lasting only three innings while allowing four runs on nine hits. The bullpen picked up the slack by tossing six scoreless innings.
Dozier singled to tie the game in the bottom of the ninth Friday, then won the game with a base hit in the 13th. On Saturday, Dozier doubled home Clete Thomas to tie the game in the seventh, then scored the winning run on a Ryan Doumit single.
The Twins will go for the sweep on Sunday at Target Field.
