Twins Rout White Sox Behind Berrios & Rosario 31 Aug 17

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Jose Berrios pitched seven scoreless innings, Brian Dozier had four hits and Eddie Rosario homered twice on Wednesday night as the Twins defeated the Chicago White Sox 11-1.

Berrios tied a career high with 11 strikeouts, including seven of the last nine batters he faced. He walked one and gave up just four hits to win his seventh straight start at Target Field and improve to 12-6.

Mitch Garver and Ehire Adrianza each had three hits for the Twins. Adrianza tripled twice and drove in four runs, while Garver scored three runs and was a home run short of the cycle.

The Twins are 19-10 in August, best in the majors, and remain one game ahead of the Angels in the wildcard race, they’re also just a game behind the Yankees for the number one wildcard spot.

Byron Buxton left the game with a hand injury, he’ll be evaluated today but the Twins are hopeful it’s just a minor injury.
