MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Luke Hughes hit a tiebreaking homer and the Minnesota Twins snapped a six-game losing streak, rebounding from an embarrassing blowout to beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 6-4 on Tuesday night.
Ben Revere scored twice, stole two bases and drove in a run for Minnesota. Brian Duensing (5-7) allowed four runs, four hits and four walks in five innings.
One night after giving up 25 hits, a club record for a nine-inning game, in a 15-0 loss to the Dodgers, the Twins jumped out to a 3-0 lead against Ted Lilly after two innings.
Matt Capps walked two but finished for his 12th save in 17 chances.
