Twins 7, Orioles 6
Michael Aubrey hit a two-run double vs. the Twins in the second inning on Tuesday. (AP)
The O's capitalized early with Michael Aubrey's two-run double and Cesar Izturis' RBI single in the second. Aubrey and Matt Wieters were also able to induce bases-loaded walks, but reliever Brian Bass gave up the lead after Brian Matusz left after five frames with the club ahead by three.
