The Twins lost 3-1 at Baltimore Sunday as the Orioles completed the sweep of Minnesota.  Jason Hammel took a no-hitter into the 8th inning before Justin Morneau’s double broke-up the no-hitter to lead off the 8th inning.  Josh Willingham doubled Morneau in to scored the lone Twins’ run.  Anthony Swarzak threw 5 innings with 1 earned run allowed to take the loss.  Swarzak started in place of Liam Hendriks.  Hendriks couldn’t pitch because of food poisioning.

The Twins are 0-3 and will host the Los Angeles Angels today in their home opener at 3:10, pregame on WJON at 2:40.  Righthander Nick Blackburn gets the start on the mound for the Twins and lefthander C.J. Wilson get the ball for the Angels.  Blackburn was 7-10 with a 4.49 ERA in 2011 while Wilson was 16-7 with a 2.94 ERA in 2011 for Texas.

The Twins will also honor the 2002 Twins team that won the American League Central Division title after facing possible contraction that season.  Doug Mientkiewicz, Eddie Guardado, Brad Radke, Jacque Jones, Corey Koskie and Denny Hocking will all take part in the pregame festivities and throw out the first pitches.
