|Twins double Astros, spoil Clemens return|
The Minnesota Twins doubled the Houston Astros 4-2 Thursday night, ruining the 43 year old Roger Clemens season-debut, as his team was swept in the three-game series.
Minnesota came into the game listed at -110 odds, while the six runs scored fell UNDER the posted over/under (7.5).
Justin Morneau went 3-3 with a home run for one RBI in the win as Minnesota climbs a game above .500 to sit at 36-35 overall.
Jason Lane smacked a two-run shot to left field for the only two runs of the day for Houston as they sit a game above .500 as well at 37-36 overall.
Francisco Liriano improved to 7-1 with the win, going eight innings, allowing two runs off four hits and Joe Nathan picked up his 11th save of the season. Roger Clemens lasted five innings and suffered the loss after giving up two runs off six hits.
