OAKLAND, Calif. -- Leave it to a pair of former Oakland Athletics to end one of the worst skids the Minnesota Twins have ever had against another club. Kurt Suzuki hit a tiebreaking double and Josh Willingham added two-run homer in the eighth inning, and the Twins snapped a 12-game losing streak to Oakland by beating the As 6-1 on Sunday. "Theyve had their way with us," said Willingham, who played for the As in 2011. "If we wouldve come in here and lost today, that wouldve been a very big disappointment. We needed to get this win." Brian Dozier connected for his 20th homer in the first before Suzuki and Willingham each had a big hit against Luke Gregerson (2-2) in the eighth. Minnesota scored two more in the ninth to avoid a four-game sweep with its first win over the As since last September. Only 13-game losing streaks to the New York Yankees (2002-2003) and Texas Rangers (1998-1999) top the Twins skid to Oakland. "Its just one of those things," Suzuki said, struggling to find an explanation. Phil Hughes (12-8) allowed four hits in seven innings for his second straight victory. He came out because of a cracked nail on his right index finger, which he glued back on in the clubhouse -- something he said he has done throughout his career and shouldnt keep him from making his next start. Stephen Vogts RBI single in the first accounted for the As only run. The poor offensive effort wasted a second straight superb start from Jason Hammel, who gave up four hits and one run in 6 1-3 innings. Hammel, who beat Tampa Bay his last time out, had lost his first four starts with Oakland after being acquired in a July 4 trade with the Chicago Cubs that also sent Jeff Samardzija to the AL West leaders. "This is the best hes pitched from what Ive seen," As manager Bob Melvin said. After they each allowed a run in the first, Hammel and Hughes quickly corrected most of the mistakes they made the rest of the way. But the biggest blunder might have been a self-inflicted one by the Twins. With two runners on in the seventh, Jordan Schafer whiffed at a bunt and Eduardo Nunez was tagged out between third and home. Fernando Abad struck out Schafer on the next pitch. Minnesota more than made up for the mistake in the eighth and ninth innings. LOST IN THE SUN Suzuki, who was a catcher for the As from 2007-12 before returning for 15 games late last season, should know more than anybody on the Twins about how difficult the sun can be in Oakland during day games. Instead, Suzuki provided one of Sundays best bloopers when he never turned to catch Josh Reddicks popup that bounced off the warning track behind the plate in the fourth. Reddick drew Oaklands only walk off Hughes in the at-bat. "They said I missed it. But I didnt think I missed it because I didnt even try to go for it," Suzuki joked. "It doesnt count as a miss." TRAINERS ROOM Twins: First baseman Joe Mauer, who has been out since July 1 with a strained muscle on his right side, is expected to be activated at Houston on Monday. Infielder Trevor Plouffe (sore left foot) and outfielder Oswaldo Arcia (lower back pain) sat out. Both are day to day. Athletics: Shortstop Jed Lowrie got the day off to rest his bruised right index finger, which sidelined him for three games last week. Hes expected to start Monday at Kansas City. UP NEXT Twins: Minnesota will call up former As lefty Tommy Milone from Triple-A Rochester to start Monday in Houston. Milone was dealt to the Twins at the July 31 trade deadline for outfielder Sam Fuld after going 6-3 with a 3.55 ERA for Oakland this season. Athletics: Sonny Gray (12-5, 2.87 ERA), the AL Pitcher of the Month for July, tries to rebound from back-to-back losses in August when he goes in the opener at Kansas City. Travis Swanson Jersey . He was attracted by the punishing defence, the strong running game and a coaching staff he trusted. The 49ers announced Thursday that Manningham had signed a two-year deal to join the team he helped knock out in the NFC championship game two months ago in their latest offensive upgrade at wide receiver.

Now in my view, Orpik can be clearly seen leaving his feet while delivering a moderately high hit. http://www.lionsfanspro.com/Black-Brand ... at=909.com) - Nate Buss 3-pointer with 5. Marvin Jones Jr Jersey . With his father watching from the stands, Harrison homered, doubled, single and drove in a career-high five runs to lead the Pirates to a 8-3 win over the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday. Ameer Abdullah Jersey . The 20-year-old Inoue landed a series of combinations and the bout was stopped 2 minutes, 54 seconds into the sixth round. Inoue, the first Japanese boxer to claim a world title in just his sixth professional fight, improved to 6-0 with five knockouts.EAST LANSING, Mich. -- Adreian Payne had 20 points and 14 rebounds, and No. 9 Michigan State cruised past Northwestern 85-70 on Thursday night to stay tied atop the Big Ten. The Spartans (21-4, 10-2) are even in the standings with rival Michigan -- and those two teams meet in Ann Arbor on Feb. 23. Gary Harris added 14 points for Michigan State, rebounding a bit from a poor shoooting performance in a loss to Wisconsin last weekend.dddddddddddd The Spartans shot 53 per cent from the field against a Northwestern team that came in with a sterling defensive reputation. The Wildcats (12-13, 5-7) had not allowed 80 points in a game in over a month. Michigan State was without point guard Keith Appling, who has been bothered by a wrist injury.
