The Pirates beat the Twins, 8 - 2. Andy LaRoche and Adam LaRoche both homer, the first brother combo to homer in the same game for Pittsburgh since Paul Waner and Lloyd Waner in 1938. Andrew McCutchen also hits his first home run as the league's weakest team (in terms of homers) rides the long ball to victory.
