BALTIMORE -- Trevor Plouffe hit a tying single with two outs in the ninth inning and the Minnesota Twins took advantage of two errors in the 12th to beat the Baltimore Orioles 4-3 Sunday for a four-game sweep.
The Twins have won eight straight against Baltimore dating to last season.
Minnesota manager Paul Molitor was ejected in the ninth for arguing a strikeout by Miguel Sano, who tried to hold back his swing. Plouffe followed with his hit, giving closer Zach Britton his third blown save of the season.
