Glenn Adams (1) had 3 hits, including a HR and 3 RBI. Rob Wilfong (5) went deep and knocked in 2. Darrell Jackson (1-2) cruised through 8 IP for the W.


May 21, 1980 at Chicago – Geoff Zahn (5-4) made sure Minnesota completed the sweep with a 5-hit shutout in the series finale. Twins win 3-0. DH Jose Morales’ (3) solo shot in the 7th off Steve Trout (3-2) proved to be enough runs.
