Twins salvage doubleheader split with Rockies - MLB Summaries / Weekend Schedule

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Jose Berrios allowed two hits and struck out 11 over 7 2/3 innings as the Minnesota Twins beat the Colorado Rockies 2-0 on Thursday night, salvaging a split of an interleague doubleheader between the first-place teams in the AL Central and NL West.

The Twins scored just three runs in the doubleheader, but Berrios (2-0) made his scant support in the nightcap hold up with the best outing of his young career.

The Rockies took Game 1 of their day-night twinbill in Minnesota as German Marquez held the Twins to a run and four hits over five innings of Colorado's 5-1 victory. Nolan Arenado hit a first-inning homer and Mark Reynolds added a two-run single to support Marquez. Charlie Blackmon provided two of the Rockies' six hits and drove in a run for the NL West leaders.

Elsewhere in the majors:

 — The Texas Rangers sat in last place in the AL West following a 5-1 loss to the San Diego Padres on May 8. They haven't lost since. The Rangers own baseball's longest current winning streak at nine games following an 8-4 romp over the visiting Philadelphia Phillies. Ryan Rua snapped a 2-2 tie in the fifth with a three-run homer after Robinson Chirinos and Rougned Odor delivered consecutive RBI singles with two out to keep the inning alive. Martin Perez spotted the Phils a 2-0 lead before improving to 2-5, allowing five hits and no walks with eight strikeouts over seven innings. Nomar Mazara had two hits and two RBIs for the Rangers, who own their longest winning streak since a 12-game run in July 2011.

— Danny Duffy and Mike Moustakas were the stars in Kansas City's 5-1 win against the New York Yankees. Duffy struck out a season-high 10 and limited the Yankees to three hits over seven innings. Moustakas slammed a three-run homer to help the Royals avoid a three-game sweep.

— Javier Baez was 3-for-3 with a grand slam and five RBIs as the Cubs hammered the Reds, 9-5 to complete a three-game sweep. Kris Bryant also went deep to back Jon Lester, who gave up three runs and six hits over six innings. The defending World Series champs climbed two games over .500 and dealt the Reds their sixth consecutive loss.

— Yasiel Puig pweeg) hit a solo shot, drove in two runs and scored twice as the Dodgers dealt the Marlins their ninth loss in 10 games, 7-2. Chase Utley also had two RBIs for Los Angeles, which finished the game without Justin Turner because of an injured right hamstring. Winning pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu had to leave the game in the sixth inning after taking a grounder off a leg.

— J.D. Martinez launched a three-run homer before Victor Martinez added a two-run blast in the fifth to put the Tigers ahead to stay in a 6-5 triumph over Baltimore. Orioles starter Dylan Bundy had thrown eight straight quality starts before surrendering six runs in as many innings. Chris Davis, Adam Jones and Seth Smith homered for the Birds, who have dropped six of seven since opening the season 22-10.

— Pittsburgh whipped Washington for the second straight day as Adam Frazier collected four RBIs in a 10-4 rout of the NL East leaders. Frazier hit a two-run double in the sixth inning and a two-run single in the seventh after teammate John Jaso broke a 4-4 stalemate with a solo shot. Josh Bell opened the scoring with a two-run blast in the first inning, his fourth homer in six games.

— The Milwaukee Brewers were 4-2 winners at San Diego behind Eric Sogard's four hits and three RBIs. Sogard is 10-for-17 with two home runs and a pair of four-hit games since being recalled from Triple-A Colorado Springs last Friday. Zach Davies gave up two runs over six frames in winning his third straight start.

— Boston hurler Hector Velazquez served up homers by Jed Lowrie, Khris Davis and Chad Pinder in his major league debut as Oakland cruised to an 8-3 victory. Lowrie and Davis hit back-to-back homers off Velazquez, who reached the majors after seven years in the Mexican League. Winning pitcher Sonny Gray struck out eight while giving up three runs over six innings, settling down after the Red Sox scored twice in the first.

— Marcus Stroman hit the second homer by a pitcher in Blue Jays history and pitched into the sixth inning as Toronto clobbered the Braves' 9-0 in Atlanta to avoid a four-game season sweep. Stroman struck out six over 5 2/3 innings after the Braves had torched Toronto hurlers for at least eight rebounds in each of the first three games. Darrell Ceciliani had a run-scoring double and a two-run homer before leaving with a left shoulder injury.

— Seattle's bullpen squandered a 4-0 lead before pinch-hitter Guillermo Heredia's two-out single in the ninth gave the Mariners a 5-4 win over the White Sox. Jean Segura's three-run homer gave him a 17-game hitting streak, tying the longest in the majors this season. Jarrod Dyson also went deep, but the White Sox tied it on round-trippers by Matt Davidson, Todd Frazier and Tim Anderson.
