Continued: It was enough to make you scream - and Torii did

Twins lefthander Johan Santana (6-5), who needed a few innings to figure out umpire Mike Muchlinski's strike zone, gave up four runs (three earned) over six innings.

Santana was shaky in the first inning, one that included an RBI single by Nick Swisher, two walks and a wild pitch. Santana needed a high-quality double play by Jason Bartlett and Luis Castillo to get out of the inning.

But Bartlett made a wild throw to second on a force attempt that would have ended the third inning with just one run scored. Instead, two runs scored on the play, which was enough for Oakland.

It's not the way to head into a series this week against AL West-leading Los Angeles.

"We were on a roll," Cuddyer said. "To drop this series is tough, but we have to rebound."
