Hunter's go-ahead double lifts Twins over Blue Jays 6-5
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - -
Trevor Plouffe hit a two-run homer, Torii Hunter had a go-ahead double in the seventh inning and the Minnesota Twins beat the Toronto Blue Jays 6-5 on Sunday. Ryan Pressly (3-1) got two outs for the win, and the Twins overcame an early injury to starter Ricky Nolasco to win two of three in the series. A sore right ankle ended Nolasco's bid for a sixth straight victory in the second inning.
The Blue Jays led 5-4 in the seventh after Josh Donaldson's 15th homer, but a throwing error by shortstop Jose Reyes allowed Aaron Hicks to reach safely in the bottom half against Roberto Osuna (1-2). One out later, Brian Dozier singled and then Hunter launched a two-run double over Chris Colabello's head in left field.
Blaine Boyer worked a scoreless eighth and Glen Perkins pitched the ninth for his major league-leading 19th save in 19 chances.
