The Minnesota Twins have found the formula to winning  baseball games this season: Play Houston. The 36-71 Astros made their first visit to target Field Friday night, and added to their league-leading loss total (72) by falling to the Twins 4-3 in thirteen innings.

The Twins came from behind to tie the game in the eighth inning and again in the ninth, before Brian Dozier's two-out single in bottom of the 13th scored Clete Thomas with the winning run.

Game two of the three-game series is tonight at 6:10 at Target Field. Kyle Gibson (2-3, 6.21) is scheduled to start of the Twins. Erik Bedard (3-8, 4.28) will take the mound for the Astros.

The final game of the series is set for Sunday afternoon at 1:10.
