Odorizzi, Twins go for two in a row over A's

The Minnesota Twins snapped their longest losing streak of the season in dramatic fashion in Thursday night's series opener with the Oakland A's in Minneapolis.

Eddie Rosario hit a three-run, pinch-hit home run in the seventh inning to put Minnesota in front 4-3 and Mitch Garver and C.J. Cron added solo home runs an inning later in a 6-3 victory that ended a modest three-game losing stretch by the American League Central leaders.

Right-hander Jake Odorizzi (11-4, 3.06 ERA) will try to make it two in a row for the Twins on Friday night against Oakland, which will counter with right-hander Chris Bassitt (6-4, 3.98).
