Joe Mauer drove in four runs and the Minnesota Twins rallied against Max Scherzer, handing the contending Detroit Tigers a 10-4 loss Sunday in the opener of a day-night doubleheader.
Gavin Floyd finally solved the Minnesota Twins with nine strikeouts in seven shutout innings and Alex Rios homered to help the Chicago White Sox to a 3-2 victory on Tuesday night.
Ryan Dempster further raised his trade value with eight shutout innings, pitching the Chicago Cubs past the Minnesota Twins 8-2 Sunday.
Forget catching up to the Tigers. At this rate, the White Sox won’t be able to stay ahead of the Twins with 15 games remaining against Minnesota this season.
