The Minnesota Twins rallied for a win after losing a 4-0 lead.
The Minnesota Twins looked as if a familiar script this season would repeat itself tonight. The team had staked itself to a healthy lead only to have it quickly evaporate.
However, the offense battled back, retook the lead and then the bullpen held. It was a welcome change in narrative.
The Twins are now 18-40 with the win.
