Refsnyder, Twins Hand Orioles 14th Straight Loss, 3-2 In 10

BALTIMORE (AP) -- Rob Refsnyder bounced back from a run-in with the center-field fence to score the go-ahead run in the 10th inning on a wild pitch and the Minnesota Twins handed the Baltimore Orioles their 14th straight loss, 3-2.

The Orioles' skid ties for their second-longest in team history — they also dropped 14 in a row in 1954, the season the club moved from St. Louis to Baltimore.

The Orioles' worst losing streak came in 1988 when they lost their first 21 games of the year.

Refsnyder smacked into the padded wall chasing Ryan Mountcastle's home run in the fifth. Refsnyder scored in the 10th on a wild pitch by Adam Plutko.
