The Twins lost 8-1 to the Baltimore Orioles at home Tuesday night.  Brian Duensing allowed 9 hits and 7 earned runs in 2 innings to take the loss and drop to 8-13.  Duensing has a 5.12 ERA.  Danny Valencia hit a solo homerun accounting for the lone Twins’ run.  Justin Morneau returned to the lineup after missing 3 games after he fouled a ball off his foot.  Morneau was 0-3 as a designated hitter.

Lester Oliveros made his Twins debut and allowed 1 earned run in 2 innings.  He was acquired in the Delmon Young trade last week.  Alfredo Simon allowed 3 hits and 1 earned run in 8 innings to get the win for the Orioles.

Minnesota is 55-73 and 15 games back of Detroit for first place in the American League Central.  The Twins will host Baltimore again tonight at 7:10, pregame on WJON at 6:40.  Righthander Kevin Slowey (0-1) gets the start on the mound for the Twins and righthander Jeremy Guthrie (5-16) toes the rubber for the Orioles.
