Tied at 6-6 heading into the final frame, the Twins loaded the bases off Chia- Jen Lo (0-3) on an infield single from Brian Dozier and Doug Bernier and Chris Herrmann walks, leading to Colabello's blast over the wall in right. Trevor Plouffe and Dozier each homered for Minnesota, with the former picking up three hits and a walk in four plate appearances. Josh Roenicke (3-1) earned the win with two scoreless innings after Anthony Swarzak, who went 4 1/3 innings in relief of Andrew Albers, struck out five and gave up just a run on three hits.

Jose Altuve went 4-for-5 despite the loss, which gives Houston six in its last seven games.
