PHOENIX (AP) -- Juan Miranda homered, Daniel Hudson had an RBI single to go with eight strong innings on the mound and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the Minnesota Twins 3-2 on Sunday to complete a three-game sweep.
The Diamondbacks won their sixth straight, their longest run in three seasons, and eighth in nine games to climb to .500 (23-23) for the first time since April 20.
Miranda, 9 for 18 on the homestand with five RBIs, left in the eighth inning after being hit in the right wrist by a pitch.
Hudson (5-5) allowed two runs, including Delmon Young's first homer of the season, and eight hits with six strikeouts and no walks to improve to 5-1 in his last six starts. Alex Burnett (0-3) took the loss.
