CHICAGO (AP) -- Max Kepler homered, Jose Berrios threw six shutout innings to outduel Yu Darvish and the Minnesota Twins beat the Chicago Cubs 4-0 on Sunday night.
CHICAGO – Major league players reached an agreement with the league a week ago about allowing families to accompany them inside the quarantined playoff bubble. But that deal left out some people, Rich Hill pointed out this weekend: families of non-playing staff members who, like the players, won’t be able to go home while the Twins are still alive in the postseason.
No, that was Jose Berrios. In what promised to be an exciting pitching matchup, Berrios outdueled Darvish as the Twins beat the Cubs 4-0 and shined on ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball, their first appearance in the coveted time slot since 2010. In his second scoreless start of the season — the other was exactly a month earlier — Berrios tossed six innings, giving up just four hits.
