Twins 6, Orioles 2
MINNEAPOLIS — Rookie Max Kepler continued his midseason surge with a tying home run among two hits and two RBIs to power the Twins. Kepler hit his 11th home run off reliever Odrisamer Despaigne leading off the sixth inning to tie the score at 2 after Baltimore starter Ubaldo Jimenez lasted five innings in his first start since July 8. Kepler had an RBI double as part of a four-run seventh. Minnesota's Ryan Pressly combined with two other relievers to allow just two hits in the final three innings.
