    Twins achieve season highs in runs and hits in win over Baltimore

    BALTIMORE (AP) Max Kepler homered and drove in four runs, Miguel Sano and Jorge Polanco each had a career-high four hits and the Minnesota Twins roared back to beat the Baltimore Orioles 14-7 Monday night.

    Minnesota trailed 5-0 in the second inning and 6-2 entering the fifth before cranking up the offense against Ubaldo Jimenez and an ineffective Baltimore bullpen.

    A two-run double by Kepler helped the Twins knot the score in the fifth, Minnesota sent 11 batters to the plate in a six-run sixth and Sano added a two-run homer in the ninth.

    Joe Mauer had three hits, two RBIs and scored twice for the Twins, who reached season highs in runs and hits (21).

    Adam Jones hit a three-run drive in the second inning off Kyle Gibson (1-4) for Baltimore.
