Twins 3, Astros 1

Twins 3, Astros 1

MINNEAPOLIS — Tyler Duffey pitched six effective innings and the Twins took advantage of two misplays by Astros centerfielder Carlos Gomez in a three-run fifth. Gomez, a former Twins outfielder, let Jorge Polanco's single skip by him for a two-base error that allowed one run to score. Then he lost a fly ball off Juan Centeno's bat, turning it into an RBI triple. Danny Santana followed with a run-scoring single, and Minnesota won for the seventh time in nine games. Since July 2, Minnesota has gone 21-12. Duffey allowed one run and struck out eight.
