Game 3. Minnesota at Toronto


Minnesota takes a 2-1 lead in the best of five series.

Frank Viola allowed Billy Gardner to rest his bullpen, tossing a complete game
as the Minnesota Twins beat the Toronto Blue Jays by a score of 2 to 1.

The game was decided in the top of the 9th inning. After an out was recorded,
Darrell Brown drew a walk. Tom Brunansky got his chance to keep things
going, but he went down on strikes. Dave Engle then drew a walk. Roy Lee
Jackson then had one get away for a wild pitch. Jackson then uncorked a wild
one that found its way to the backstop scoring the run. Neither team was
able to score until the 6th inning.

Viola(3-1) got the victory, allowing 1 run for the game. Jackson(2-1) was
given the loss in relief. He allowed 1 hit and 2 walks in 3 and 1/3 innings.
