TWINS 7, ORIOLES 0
Jose Berrios pitched a three-hitter for his first career complete game, and Minnesota got two home runs from Brian Dozier in a rout of Baltimore.
Only one batter reached against Berrios over the first eight innings – No. 9 hitter Chance Sisco, whose third-inning double whisked by the raised glove of left fielder Eddie Rosario at the wall.
Berrios then retired 17 straight before Sisco bunted down the third-base line against the shift for a one-out single in the ninth. A walk and a single loaded the bases before Berrios retired Jonathan Schoop and Adam Jones.
Berrios (1-0) struck out six and walked one in his 40th career start. He threw 107 pitches.
Miguel Sano and Eduardo Escobar also connected for the Twins, who won two of three in the season-opening series.
Orioles starter Kevin Gausman (0-1) allowed three home runs and lasted only four innings.
