Twins update

Minnesota lost two straight before defeating the Seattle Mariners yesterday and returning to .500. Michael Cuddyer hit his fourth career grand slam. The Twins were batting .249 in August before yesterday's 8-4 win, the second-lowest average in the American League. Center fielder Torii Hunter was batting .347 in August before yesterday, when he went 2-for-4 to extend his hitting streak to nine games, but Justin Morneau hasn't homered in 103 at-bats. Shortstop Jason Bartlett is expected back in the lineup after testing his strained hamstring yesterday. Santana struck out 17 in his last start against the Texas Rangers. The Twins swept the Orioles in Minnesota to begin the season.
