The Twins blew a 6-0 lead against Baltimore Friday night at Target Field, ultimately losing 9-6 in ten innings. The loss snaps a three game Minnesota winning streak.

Josh Willingham’s RBI groundout gave the Twins a 1-0 lead in the first inning, and Joe Mauer’s two-run single made it 3-0 after two innings.

Trevor Plouffe, Ryan Doumit and Oswaldo Arcia also added RBI for Minnesota in the third through fifth innings for a 6-0 lead.

The Orioles began their comeback with three runs in the top of the sixth to cut the Twins lead in half at 6-3, then added three more runs in the seventh to tie the game.

Baltimore took the lead in the top of the tenth inning on a pair of RBI singles and a sacrifice fly.

The Twins will try to even their series with the Orioles at 6:10 pm on Saturday night at Target Field.
