Wednesday, September 21, 2011
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Rene Tosoni hit an RBI double with two outs in the ninth inning and the Minnesota Twins snapped their 11-game losing streak, beating the Seattle Mariners 3-2 Thursday.
Tosoni had three hits and scored twice. His drive to the right-field wall easily drove in Trevor Plouffe from first base.
Joe Nathan (1-1) pitched a scoreless ninth to earn the win after getting out of his own trouble. The Mariners stranded 12 runners, including the potential go-ahead run at third in the ninth.
Seattle reliever Steve Delabar (1-1) went 1 1-3 innings.
