Solid start by Gibson helps Twins beat Orioles 4-3 for sweep

BALTIMORE (AP) There will be plenty of games this season in which the Minnesota Twins use the long ball to win. When that doesn't happen, they're happy to go with Plan B.

Such was the case Sunday against the Baltimore Orioles, when Minnesota produced just enough runs without the benefit of a home run and got some clutch pitching from the bullpen in a 4-3 victory that cemented a three-game sweep.

After hitting 11 homers in a doubleheader Saturday, the Twins found a different way to score. Nelson Cruz worked his way around the bases after being hit by a pitch, Willians Astudillo drove in a run with a sacrifice fly and a botched popup led to a pair of unearned runs.
