Twins 6, Orioles 5

Associated Press  |  Last updated April 06, 2013
Justin Morneau singled in the tiebreaking run with two outs in the ninth inning after an error by Chris Davis, and the Minnesota Twins got a home run from Chris Parmalee in a 6-5 victory over the Baltimore Orioles on Saturday night. Although Davis picked up his 17th RBI, he failed to become the first player in major league history to homer in the first five games of the season. The first baseman also opened the door for the Twins to snatch their first win in Baltimore since April 21, 2011. With the score tied at 5, Baltimore turned to closer Jim Johnson (0-1) in the ninth. Davis let a one-out grounder by Aaron Hicks roll through his legs, and after a two-out walk to Josh Willingham, Morneau singled up the middle. It was Johnson's first loss since last July 27. Josh Roenicke (1-0) pitched three innings of one-hit relief and Glen Perkins got three straight outs for his first save.
