Marathon second inning chases Jose Berrios, sends Twins to 10-5 loss
Santana got a lot of help from his defense as Joe Mauer made a couple of nice plays in his first game back from the DL and Miguel Sano made an outstanding, run-saving catch in the fourth inning.
The Twins will look for more from Dozier when they take on the host Houston Astros on Sunday in the rubber game of a three-game series.
The teams will finish the three-game series Sunday afternoon at 1:10 p.m. Mike Fiers (5-4 3.84) will start against the Twins Kyle Gibson (5-7 6.31).
In 10 starts since being called back up from Rochester, Gibson has a 5.40 ERA, has given up 10 homers and has 35 strikeouts against 25 walks. His last start before the break saw him give up seven runs in just four innings to the Orioles.
1 Walk for the Twins, their fewest since June 29. He has allowed just 40 earned runs in 93.2 innings of work.
8 Career double-digit strikeout games for Fiers. Houston is now 61-30 overall and 28-19 at home while Minnesota is 46-44 overall and 26-16 on the road.
Ervin Santana (11-6) pitched 6 innings giving up 2 earned runs, 5 hits and striking out 3. His leadoff homer set the stage for Minnesota's 4-2 win Saturday night, which snapped the club's three-game slide and its seven-game losing streak against the Astros. Eddie Rosario also had two hits and drove in two runs in the win. Jose Altuve hit his 14th homerun of the season for Houston in the 3rd inning. Fiers should be just fine at home.
