The boxscore has stood the test of time as vital reference material following baseball games. But it doesn’t tell the entire story, and it definitely won’t reflect how the Twins rallied to beat the Orioles 4-3 on Friday night.

The boxscore is going to make Kurt Suzuki look like a hitting star when he wasn’t. And it won’t totally show how Torii Hunter impacted the game with his feet more so than his bat.

It will show that Casey Fien (3-5) got the victory in relief, recording five outs while throwing only 14 pitches. And that Orioles All-Star sidearmer Darren O’Day (5-2) had a really bad night.

The Twins trailed 3-1 in the eighth inning when Miguel Sano led off with a walk against O’Day. Trevor Plouffe blooped a single to right that second baseman Jonathan Schoop couldn’t catch; Sano had to hustle to avoid getting forced out at second. O’Day then hit Hunter with an 0-1 pitch to load the bases.

Eddie Rosario hit a sacrifice fly to right, enabling Sano to score. But what won’t show up in the boxscore is that Parra, a fine outfielder, tried to throw Plouffe out as he ran to third. Hunter noticed and advanced to second as Plouffe beat the throw.

Twins manager Paul Molitor said from his perch it was hard to tell how deep Parra was, but was glad Plouffe decided to advance and Hunter followed. That put the lead run in scoring position.
