Arcia’s HR lifts Twins over Astros
MINNEAPOLIS — The Minnesota Twins had only five hits on Sunday, but two of them were home runs, helping the Twins beat the Houston Astros 3-2 at Target Field for a series sweep.
The Twins’ homers spoiled an otherwise good performance by Astros starting pitcher Brad Peacock.
Peacock, who was recalled from the minors for the game, had a rough first inning, giving up a two-run homer to Justin Morneau. But Peacock settled down and pitched five shutout innings.
