Miguel Sano (who turned 23 today) homered for Minnesota.

Phil Hughes lost his fourth straight start and served up three (of the four) Baltimore home runs. In his last 11 innings pitched, Hughes has allowed 15 earned runs.

Joe Mauer was in the leadoff spot again on Wednesday and reached base three times including two hits at the top of the order.
