The Minnesota Twins took a no-hitter into the eighth inning Saturday night, settling for a 6-2 win over the Baltimore Orioles at Camden Yards.
Twins starter Kyle Gibson threw six innings of no-hit ball but was pulled by manager Paul Molitor after reaching 102 pitches. Gibson walked five and struck out six. Reliever Ryan Pressly took the ball in the seventh inning and kept the no-no alive for 1⅔ innings before yielding a two-out single up the middle to the Orioles’ Jonathan Schoop.
The Orioles scored two runs in the ninth but Minnesota held on for the team’s first victory of the 2018 season.
