Santana (7-2) allowed a single in the second inning and another in the fifth and nothing more.

The pitching matchup in today's game has Ervin Santana (6-2, 2.07 ERA) pitching for the Twins to face Dylan Bundy (5-2, 2.97) of the Orioles.

Minnesota Twins' Kennys Vargas hits an RBI double in the first inning of a baseball game against the Baltimore Orioles in Baltimore, Wednesday, May 24, 2017.

Will the Minnesota Twins and Baltimore Orioles manage another high-scoring game when the two meet up again tonight at 7:05PM ET?

Berrios (3-0) struck out seven and walked two in his third consecutive impressive start since being recalled from Triple-A Rochester on May 13. The Orioles were shutout in Tuesday's loss and have scored three or less runs in four of their last 11 games.

Lorenzo Cain, Whit Merrifield and Mike Moustakas also homered late for the Royals, who went deep four times in a span of nine batters.

They took a 5-0 lead in the second inning.

On the 22nd anniversary of Mariano Rivera's major league debut, the Yankees' usually reliable bullpen flopped: Adam Warren (1-1), Jonathan Holder and Chasen Shreve all allowed long balls.

NEW YORK - Chris Carter made a run-saving defensive play in the top of the seventh and hit a solo home run in the bottom of the inning as New York beat Kansas City.

In this one, Minnesota bolted to a 4-0 lead and withstood solo homers by J.J. Hardy, Chris Davis and Jonathan Schoop to complete its fourth sweep of the season - matching its total of all previous year.

Maybin led off by homering on a 3-1 pitch from Alex Cobb (4-4).

Vargas had two hits of Minnesota's 10 hits including a two-run single during a three-run first inning against Baltimore starter Chris Tillman (1-1).

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - Los Angeles got a solid start from JC Ramirez and scored the go-ahead run on a bases-loaded wild pitch in the seventh inning for a victory over Tampa Bay. Furthermore, Sano recorded his 11th home-run of the season and helped his All-Star Game campaign.

The Twins improved to 14-5 on the road and are in first place in the American League Central. He allowed just four base runners up until that point and only one run on J.J. Hardy's solo homer in the third.

Jeremy Hellickson is off to a nice start for the Phillies, taking a 5-1 record into this outing at home vs. Colorado. Nine of the Orioles' 10 losses over their past 13 games have been decided by two runs or fewer, but they dropped three games to the Twins this week by a combined score of 20-10.

Rendon doubled before his second homer - and seventh of the season - completed an eight-run fourth inning. The two hit the over, which they have done in three of their last four meetings. Berrios has permitted just four hits in 15 1/3 frames this season after posting a bloated 8.02 ERA in 14 starts in 2016, becoming the 12th pitcher to make at least that many starts and finish with an ERA north of 8.00.

HOUSTON - Jose Iglesias finished a triple shy of the cycle, Ian Kinsler had two hits and scored twice, and Detroit Tigers defeated Houston to snap a three-game skid.

Brandon Phillips, Matt Adams and Tyler Flowers added two hits each for Atlanta, which beat Pittsburgh the first time this season.
