Twins win openerby Brandt Williams, Minnesota Public Radio
Minneapolis — The Minnesota Twins won their home opener against the Baltimore Orioles 7-4 Monday night at the Metrodome.
The victory came as the result of strong performances by some of the teams best known players. Two-time Cy Young award-winning pitcher Johan Santana struck out six and last year's American League MVP, Justin Morneau, got three hits, including a home run.
The excitement around their first day and first win was muted as they honored the memory of broadcaster Herb Carneal, who died Sunday.
