Twins Win In Extras

Twins Win In Extras

It took a while, but the Twins have beaten the Astros again. Clete Thomas scored the go-ahead run on a wild pitch in the 12th inning and Darin Mastroianni added a two-run double, helping the Minnesota Twins beat the Houston Astros 9-6 on Tuesday night.

Thomas reached on a fielder’s choice and went to third on Josmil Pinto’s double. Kevin Chapman then uncorked a wild pitch with pinch-hitter Ryan Doumit at the plate.

Mastroianni provided a couple of insurance runs when he doubled with two down as Minnesota recovered after Glen Perkins blew a save opportunity in the ninth.

Brian Dozier and Trevor Plouffe homered for Minnesota, which has won three in a row. Plouffe had four hits and Mastroianni went 3 for 6 with three RBIs.

Brandon Barnes had three hits and five RBIs for the Astros, including a tying three-run homer off Perkins with two out in the ninth.
