OAKLAND, Calif. -- Michael Cuddyer hit a go-ahead triple in the 10th inning a night after he was called out in a game-ending play at home trying to score the tying run, and the Minnesota Twins beat the Oakland Athletics 3-2 on Tuesday night.
Cuddyer's two-out triple off All-Star closer Andrew Bailey (4-3) scored Joe Mauer, who singled with one out.
Matt Guerrier (5-0) worked two scoreless innings for the win in this pitcher's duel, a far cry from the offensive slugfest these teams exhibited a night earlier in Oakland's 14-13 comeback victory. All-Star Joe Nathan finished for his 26th save in 28 chances and 20th straight.
