Berrios, Twins beat White Sox 7-2
(MINNEAPOLIS) - The day after one of their ugliest losses of the season, the Minnesota Twins turned to ace in training Jose Berrios for a quick turnaround. Eduardo Escobar and Eddie Rosario added yet another pick-me-up dose of hustle and muscle, too. Berrios pitched a six-hitter for his second complete game this season, and the Twins hit three home runs against James Shields in a 7-2 victory over the Chicago White Sox. Berrios (7-5) retired his first 14 batters before Omar Narvarez's double. By that time, the 23-year-old right-hander already had a 7-0 lead. He used 10 strikeouts to win for the fourth time in five starts. Berrios has 44 strikeouts and four walks in 37 2/3 innings over that span, and he has logged a career-best five straight starts of six innings or more. Escobar hit a two-run homer after a double by Rosario in the first against Shields (1-7), who has not won in 12 starts since opening day. Ehire Adrianza added a solo shot in the second inning. Shields gave up all seven runs, matching a season high, and eight hits in six innings. He struck out six and walked two.

Toronto 5 – Baltimore 4 (10 innings)
Seattle 5 – Tampa Bay 4
Houston 5 – Texas 2
Oakland 4 – Kansas City 1
