Twins gets first series sweep of season
MINNEAPOLIS -- The Minnesota Twins are starting strong -- and not only in the standings.
Denard Span has kept up his patience at the top of the lineup, Orlando Hudson has been a tough out behind him and the Twins are often striking first. So far, it's been a winning formula.
Span was the catalyst with three singles and a walk, and the Twins beat the Detroit Tigers 5-4 on Wednesday for their first sweep in nine series this season.
