Twins 6, Orioles 5: Justin Morneau drove in the go-ahead run with a ninth-inning single against Baltimore closer Jim Johnson, and visiting Minnesota evened the series at a game apiece.
Orioles slugger Chris Davis went 1-for-3 with an RBI and had his home run streak snapped at four games. Nick Markakis was 4-for-5 and Adam Jones had two hits and three RBIs for Baltimore.
The Twins staked starter Vance Worley to a 5-2 lead with a four-run outburst in the third inning, but he couldn't make it hold up while allowing five runs (four earned) and 10 hits in five innings. The Orioles pulled even on Jones' two-run single in the fifth, and that's where it stayed until the ninth.
Aaron Hicks reached on Davis' error with one out in the ninth and moved up on Josh Willingham's walk before Morneau singled up the middle to plate the decisive run.
Josh Roenicke (1-0) earned the win with three innings of one-hit relief and Glen Perkins worked a perfect ninth for his first save.
