Twin Killing: Nats sweep Minnesota

Twin Killing: Nats sweep Minnesota

The Washington Nationals swept the Minnesota Twins in a day-night doubleheader, beating the Twins 5-4 in the nightcap and reaching .500 again.

The Nats pounded out 10 hits, chasing Twins starter Deduno, who had a sub-1.00 ERA over his last two starts, and rescuing young Nats starter Nathan Karns, who has a 7.5 ERA and no major league wins after allowing four runs over three innings.

The Nats bullpen held steady, and the offense came back against a burnt Twins bullpen. The Nats tied it in the sixth on a triple by former Twin Denard Span, and took the lead in the seventh on a double by Ian Desmond.

Pedro Florimon homered for the Twins in the loss. Swarzak (1-2) took the loss for the Twins, while Tyler Clippard (5-1) got the win with a scoreless 7th. Rafael Soriano got the save, his 16th on the year.
