Twins overcome Bautista's 2 HRs to beat Blue Jays
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Darin Mastroianni got his first major league hit and drove in three runs to help the Minnesota Twins overcome Jose Bautista's two homers in a 7-6 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays on Friday night.
Ryan Doumit added two RBIs and Denard Span had two hits and scored twice in a game that lasted 3 hours, 17 minutes, after rain delayed the first pitch for 1 hour, 51 minutes
Bautista hit two solo homers, raising his total at spacious Target Field to nine in nine career games.
Eric Thames and Edwin Encarnacion also homered for Toronto, which lost for just the second time in nine games at Target Field.
With the potential tying run on third and Matt Capps on the mound in the ninth, Bautista popped up to third base to end the game.
It was Capps's sixth save in six chances.
