Phils edge Twins 14 Jun 12

John Mayberry Jr. hit a three-run homer during a six-run first inning and the Phillies held on for a 9-8 win over the Twins. Trevor Plouffe and Josh Willingham launched solo homers for Minnesota. Starter P.J. Walters allowed four runs without recording an out in the first to fall to 2-and-2. Walters had to leave the game with right shoulder stiffness. Scott Diamond gets the nod opposite Joe Blanton in tonight’s series finale. Catch all the action on 860 AM KNUJ and SAM 107.3.
