HOUSTON -- A day after Jonathan Villar was yanked from a game because of a baserunning blunder, the 22-year-old rookie got a perfect chance to redeem himself. Kenny Golladay Jersey . Villar scored the winning run on Trevor Crowes single in the bottom of the ninth inning and the Houston Astros beat the Minnesota Twins 6-5 on Wednesday. Villar singled to start the ninth and advanced to second on a sacrifice bunt by Jose Altuve. Crowes line drive to left field off Brian Duensing (6-2) allowed the speedy Villar to score easily, giving Houston its first win in six tries against Minnesota. Manager Bo Porter took Villar out of Tuesday nights game after he was thrown out trying to stretch a leadoff single into a double in the third inning. Porter spoke to him afterward about the importance of being smart on the bases. They had a much more positive talk after Wednesdays game. "I went over and I gave him a hug and told him, Im very proud of you," Porter said. "Thats maturity ... a lot of guys would hang their head and say, Poor old me, I got taken out of the game. He didnt handle it that way at all." "I really felt like he was going to handle it the right way and he came out today and literally showed that he handled it the right way," Porter continued. Villar understood why he got in trouble, but doesnt plan on stifling his aggression on the bases. "I told him I was going to keep playing my game," said Villar, whose comments were translated by a reporter who spoke Spanish. "Despite what happened yesterday, he likes for me to play aggressively. He likes me to play aggressively, so thats how Ill play. Thats how Ill always play because thats my style of play." Duensing was unhappy that he wasnt able to hold off the Astros. "I just didnt execute right there at the end, and they did what they were supposed to," he said. Ryan Doumits leadoff home run in the ninth against Astros reliever Erik Bedard (4-10) tied it at 5. "We had chances, but there at the end, they just got it done," Minnesota manager Ron Gardenhire said. "They got the big hit, and (Duensing) just didnt make a good pitch there." Crowe, who also drove in a run in the fourth, has seven hits in four games since returning from Triple-A. "Its definitely a good start," he said. "I owe a lot of credit to Bo, I was in a good rhythm and he put me right in the lineup and I feel like Im still in that rhythm." Minnesota was down 3-0 after a three-run first inning by the Astros before tying it on a three-run shot by Alex Presley in the third. It was Presleys first homer since being acquired from Pittsburgh in the trade for Justin Morneau. Pedro Florimon doubled to open the eighth and scored on a groundout by Darin Mastroianni as the Twins closed to 5-4. Before tying it, Minnesota squandered a chance in the seventh when Chris Herrmann grounded into an inning-ending double play with the bases loaded. Brandon Barnes had two RBIs and Chris Carter and Brett Wallace added two hits apiece for Houston. Minnesota starter Liam Hendriks yielded eight hits and five runs in 4 1-3 innings, leaving him with just one win in six starts this season. Houston starter Jordan Lyles allowed four hits and three runs in 6 1-3 innings. An RBI double by Wallace put Houston up 1-0 in the first inning. Carter walked before Wallace barely scored on a single by Marc Krauss and make it 2-0, and Barnes added a sacrifice fly. Presley came out on top of a 13-pitch at-bat in the third, coming back from an 0-2 count before hitting a tying home run to right field. Jose Altuve doubled with two outs in the fourth and scored on Crowes single for a 4-3 lead. Carter led off the fifth with a single, then the 6-foot-4, 245-pound slugger took second on his second steal this season. Barnes single off reliever Ryan Pressly pushed Houstons lead to 5-3.

BALTIMORE -- A two-game series that was scheduled to end Wednesday stretched into early Friday morning before Matt Wieters finally put an end to the rain-marred interleague matchup between the Pirates and Orioles. Wieters led off the 10th inning with a home run off Stolmy Pimentel to give Baltimore a 6-5 victory and a doubleheader sweep Thursday night. In the opener, Steve Pearce had three hits and two RBIs in his return to the Orioles, who got a home run from Nick Markakis in a 5-1 win. The single-admission doubleheader followed consecutive rainouts Tuesday and Wednesday. The rain lingered long enough to delay the fifth inning of the opener by 21 minutes, and the start of the nightcap was stalled 46 minutes by rain. The second game lasted 3 hours, 57 minutes. By the time it ended, the clock had ticked well past midnight. "Its not a late night, its an early morning," said Orioles reliever Darren ODay, who pitched in both games. As ODay spoke, the team had 30 minutes to get ready for a trip to Minnesota for a three-game series that was to begin Friday night. "It will be a happy flight," ODay said, "so that will make it a little easier." The second game marked the season debut of Orioles third baseman Manny Machado, who had left knee surgery in October. After sitting out the opener, Machado received a warm ovation from the crowd of 28,290 before the second game and went 0 for 5. Baltimore trailed 4-0 in the nightcap before rallying with a four-run sixth. Adam Jones doubled in a run and scored on a single by Wieters before Pearce chased starter Brandon Cumpton with a double to right. Bryan Morris entered and yielded a two-run double to J.J. Hardy. Starling Marte countered with an RBI single in the seventh for Pittsburgh, but Markakis tied it in the bottom half with a solo shot off Morris. Wieters won it in the 10th with a drive to right off Pimentel (2-1) that soared just inside the foul pole. Tommy Hunter (1-0) got two outs for the win. Earlier, Baltimore ace Chris Tillman struggled through a 49-pitch first inning that could be attributed in part to a seven-day layoff. The right-hander issued three walks, two with the bases loaded, before getting three outs. Pittsburgh ended Tillmans outing in the fifth when Andrew McCutchen doubled and scored on a triple by Gaby Sanchez for a 3-0 lead. Pedro Alvarez had four hits for the Pirates, finishing a home run short of the cycle. But Pittsburgh stranded 15 and went 5 for 16 with runners in scoring pposition and lost for the 15th time in 19 games. Jake Rudock Jersey. "We keep fighting and fighting, and we put ourselves in scoring position and we havent been able to cash in the way we need to," manager Clint Hurdle said. "But we keep showing up. The bats were better throughout the series. ... We had men on base throughout the game, and still looking for that big hit." The first game was all about Pearce, designated for assignment by Baltimore on April 22 and released five days later. After turning down an offer from Toronto, the first baseman was re-signed Monday after Chris Davis went on the 15-day disabled list. Pearce singled in the third, fifth and sixth innings of the opener and was solid in the field. "Stevie gave us a real lift," manager Buck Showalter said. Alvarez had two hits and an RBI for the Pirates, who stranded 13 and went 1 for 14 with runners in scoring position. The defeat ended Pittsburghs nine-game road winning streak in interleague play. Trailing 1-0 when the rain stopped play, Baltimore regrouped during the break and sent nine batters to the plate in a three-run fifth. After a single, walk and an error loaded the bases against Charlie Morton (0-4), Pearce hit an RBI single and Ryan Flaherty grounded an opposite-field, two-run single to left field. Pearce singled in a run in the sixth, and Markakis hit his first homer of the season in the seventh for a 5-1 lead. Orioles starter Bud Norris (2-2) allowed one run in 5 1-3 innings, and Hunter got the last out with runners on second and third for his seventh save. Morton started well but came unhinged after the rain delay and lost his fourth consecutive start. The right-hander permitted four runs, two earned, and seven hits in 5 1-3 innings. "I kept grooving fast balls to Steve Pearce and he kept putting good swings on them," Morton lamented. NOTES: Pittsburgh returns home to face Toronto on Friday night. ... Orioles LHP Troy Patton returned from a 25-game suspension before the second game.
