Mauer reaches milestone in Twins' 4-0 win over White Sox
(MINNEAPOLIS) - Understated as usual, Joe Mauer had downplayed his approaching milestone. But when the Target Field crowd rose to its feet to acknowledge the achievement, even the modest Mauer got a bit emotional. The native Minnesotan got his 2,000th career hit at home Thursday night, and just as important for Mauer, it came in a Twins victory. Mauer had two hits and three RBIs, and Jose Berrios struck out 11 in seven innings for Minnesota in a 4-0 win against the Chicago White Sox. Mauer became the third Twins player (joining Rod Carew and Kirby Puckett), and the 12th active player, to reach 2,000 hits. He's one of 287 players in history to reach the mark. Berrios (2-1) tied his career high for strikeouts and gave up only three hits for the second time in three starts this season. The right-hander is 4-1 with a 1.67 ERA in five starts against Chicago. Lucas Giolito (0-2) pitched 6 1/3 innings for the White Sox, giving up four runs, three earned, and five hits with five walks. He struck out three. Chicago has lost eight of its past 10 games. Giolito was nearly matching Berrios for much of the game, but the control issues hurt him and Twins outfielder Byron Buxton used his speed to create runs in the third inning.

Boston 6 – NYYankees 3
LA Angels 7 – Kansas City 1
