TWINS 4, ASTROS 1
Jake Odorizzi grinded through six innings for his first win with Minnesota, and leadoff man Brian Dozier walked a career-high four times. Joe Mauer drove home two runs and reached base four times.
Odorizzi (1-0) struggled with control on another cold night in Minnesota but eventually settled in during his first home start since being acquired from Tampa Bay in February. He allowed a run on five walks and five hits.
Minnesota took advantage of Dallas Keuchel’s control problems to scratch across three runs in the first two innings. Keuchel (0-2) gave up three runs, five hits and four walks in four innings. He struck out six and left after 101 pitches.
Fernando Rodney pitched the ninth for his second save.
