Correa’s tiebreaking single gives Twins 10th win in 11 games


BALTIMORE (AP) — Chris Paddack pitched effectively into the sixth, Carlos Correa hit a tiebreaking single and the Minnesota Twins got their 10th win in 11 games with a 2-1 victory over the Baltimore Orioles.

Paddack got just enough run support for the win. The right-hander allowed a run and four hits in 5 1/3 innings. The Twins were shut out in two of his first three starts this season. Tyler Wells allowed a run and four hits in five innings for Baltimore.

Before the game, Minnesota placed Miguel Sanó on the 10-day injured list and called up infield prospect Jose Miranda to make his big league debut. The 23-year-old Miranda played third base and batted sixth. He was the Twins’ minor league player of the year in 2021. Miranda hit .344 with 30 home runs and 94 RBIs in 127 games with Double-A Wichita and Triple-A St. Paul last year. He was hitting .256 this season for St. Paul when he was recalled by the Twins on Monday.
