Twins update

The Twins took two of three from the Chicago White Sox over the weekend to pull within a game of the White Sox in the American League wild-card race. They took two of three from the Orioles in a June series. The Orioles will avoid the Twins' two best starters, ace left-hander Johan Santana and surging veteran Brad Radke. Most Valuable Player candidates Joe Mauer and Justin Morneau lead the Twins' offense. Mauer, 23, leads the American League in batting (.357) and ranks second in on-base percentage (.437). First baseman Morneau is batting .317 and leads the team with 31 homers and 107 RBIs.
