MINNEAPOLIS -- The Minnesota Twins were happy to complete a sweep, even if it was against the Houston Astros. Justin Morneau and Oswaldo Arcia homered Sunday as the Twins completed a sweep of the Houston Astros with a 3-2 victory on Sunday. "We needed these games against these guys," manager Ron Gardenhire said. "Were fighting through some of the same things, with all the kids and all those things. We had to win these games." The Twins hadnt swept a series, or won three games in a row, since June 18-20 against the Chicago White Sox. And although the Astros have baseballs worst record at 36-74 and have now lost 9 of 11 it didnt dampen the Twins joy over their modest winning streak. Minnesota started the six-game homestand with three straight losses to the Royals, prompting Gardenhire to call a team meeting then send an additional message with an early-morning workout. "We couldnt keep playing that way," said right-hander Mike Pelfrey, who laboured through five innings Sunday and left with the game tied 2-2. "I think Gardy was right the other day when he said it seemed like Kansas City might have wanted it a little more. Thats frustrating, because we were flat. But we came out and responded. Hopefully we dont have to get an early workout next time to (get us) to play a little better, but whatever it takes to win games. I think were all here to win; it doesnt always work out as much as it should." Arcia led off the seventh with a home run that broke a 2-all tie. He connected against Brad Peacock (1-4), who was promoted from Triple-A to make the start and set career highs with 10 strikeouts and seven innings pitched. The ball bounced off the top of the tall scoreboard in right-centre and back into play, but second base umpire Bob Davidson quickly signalled homer. Caleb Thielbar (2-1) got two outs for the win, and Glen Perkins pitched the ninth for his 27th save. Morneau hit a two-out, two-run homer in the first inning after Joe Mauer drew a walk off Peacock, who was recalled from Triple A to make the start. It was Morneaus third homer in eight games; he had hit one in his previous 17. "He misfired on Joe and I got to see some pitches," Morneau said. "I got 2-0 and felt like I had a decent swing and pulled the ball foul, and its still a hitters count, and was able to be aggressive. He pitched a great game; he deserved to win that game. But that was one we needed." The homer gave Pelfrey a head start toward his first victory in nearly a month. But he laboured, needing 78 pitches to work himself into and out of trouble through four innings before it caught up with him in the fifth, when he gave up two runs on three hits and a walk. The right-hander hasnt won since pitching six scoreless innings to win at Toronto on July 6. Hes 1-3 since then but has an ERA of 3.35 in five starts. Still, 4-9 with a 5.23 ERA is not what Pelfrey was looking for in his first season back from ligament replacement surgery. "I look in, get the sign and give it everything I have," Pelfrey said. "Im just not making pitches." NOTES: Twins OF Josh Willingham (knee) went to join Triple-A Rochester in Durham, N.C., for a rehab assignment. He is expected to play four games with the Red Wings and rejoin the Twins for a four-game series against the White Sox, likely as the designated hitter. ...
