Bud Norris, in line to be Baltimore's fourth or fifth starter, gave up two earned runs and seven hits in 5 1-3 innings.

Twins manager Ron Gardenhire used three potential starting pitchers against the Orioles a day after a rainout. Kyle Gibson pitched three shutout innings, striking out one and giving up two hits. Scott Diamond gave up one run off two hits while striking out one in three innings.
