MLB: Minnesota 5, San Diego 4

June 19, 2011 at 5:25 PM   |   Comments

MINNEAPOLIS, June 19 (UPI) -- Drew Butera's RBI single in the bottom of the ninth Sunday handed the Minnesota Twins a 5-4 win over San Diego and a three-game interleague series sweep.

Delmon Young led off the ninth with a single against Chad Qualls (3-3) and went to second on Luke Hughes' sacrifice.

After Tsyoshi Nishioka was intentionally walked, Butera hit a grounder into the hole that bounced off the glove of diving Padres third baseman Chase Headley, sending Young home with the game-winner.

Reliever Alex Burnett (2-4) was credited with the victory for the surging Twins, who erased a 3-1 deficit with a three-run seventh inning and won for the 14th time in 16 games.

San Diego starter Dustin Moseley yielded only one earned run on three hits in a 6 1/3-inning effort.

Headley and Ryan Ludwick each stroked a pair of hits and drove in a run in the Padres' loss.
