Twins Take Rubber-match With Mariners

(Seattle, WA) — Twins outfielder Trevor Larnach came through in the clutch as Minnesota took the rubber-match of their three-game series with the Mariners Sunday in Seattle.

Larnach launched a go-ahead, two-run home run in the top of the eighth to lead Minnesota to a 5-3 victory.

Larnach drove in three runs during the victory.

Cole Sands picked up his third out of the bullpen, while Jhoan Duran earned his 12th save.

The 47-37 Twins have won four of five and have drawn to within six-games of first-place Cleveland in the A-L Central.

Ryne Stanek was charged with his second loss in relief. The M’s have dropped five of seven.

Minnesota is off today (Monday) and will welcome the Detroit Tigers to town tomorrow night.
