TWINS 7, PIRATES 3
Jose Berrios (1-1) pitched six strong innings, Nelson Cruz had three hits and Minnesota beat Pittsburgh in a game briefly delayed when an unauthorized drone flew over Target Field.
The Twins won their fifth in a row and improved to 9-2 for the second time in the team’s 60-year history. The other was 2001.
Miguel Sano doubled and Eddie Rosario dribbled a single through the shift – a swing where he reached out without moving his feet – as part of a three-run first inning off Joe Musgrove (0-3).
The game was delayed for nine minutes in the fifth inning and players were pulled off the field when the drone flew over center field. A few pitchers in the bullpen threw balls at the flying intruder, but missed.
