Astros Walkoff Twins

Trevor Crowe singled in the winning run in the bottom of the ninth inning as the Astros prevailed over the Twins 6-5 at Minute Maid Park.  Ryan Doumit’s solo homer in the top of the ninth had tied the game at five for Minnesota.  Brian Duensing suffered the loss for the Twins.  Alex Presley went 2-for-4 with a three-run homer for Minnesota, which had won three in-a-row and four of five.

The Twins begin a 10-game homestand tomorrow night against the Toronto Blue Jays at Target Field.  Mike Pelfrey gets the ball for Minnesota.  He is 5-and-10 with a 4.86 ERA in 25 starts this season.  The Jays will counter with knuckle-baller R.A. Dickey, who is 11-and-12 with a 4.30 ERA.
