Mariners Best Twins 2-1 Friday Night
The Minnesota Twins lost the first of a six-game road trip last night, falling to the Mariners 2-1 in Seattle.
In Minnesota starter Fernando Romero's fifth career start, he allowed only five hits in seven innings while striking out seven Mariners.
Twins outfielder Max Kepler hit a solo home run in the fifth inning for Minnesota's only run of the game.
Minnesota is now 21-25, but still remain just a game and a half behind the first place Cleveland Indians.
