Aaron Hicks delivered his second hit of the season at a key time for the Twins, driving in the winning run in a 4-3 victory over the Baltimore Orioles Sunday.

Pinch-hitter Chris Parmelee's sacrifice fly had driven in the tying run just before Hicks' hit. Justin Morneau's two-run double scored the Twins' first runs.

Fresh off the injured list, Anthony Swarzak was the winning pitcher in relief. Glen Perkins pitched a perfect ninth with two strikeouts for his second save. Starter Pedro Hernandez allowed three runs in five innings. He started in place of injured Cole De Vries.

Hicks now has two hits in 26 at bats for an .077 average. But his two hits have driven in three runs.

At 4-2, the Twins are tied with the White Sox atop the American League Central Division.

The Twins begin a three game series in Kansas City on Monday. Kevin Corriea will be opposed by Ervin Santana.
