    MINNESOTA TWINS

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Eddie Rosario went 4 for 5 with three RBIs and one of Minnesota's three home runs in another power-packed romp by the major league-leading Twins, who beat the Chicago White Sox 11-4 on Friday night for their ninth win in their last 10 games.
 
     Max Kepler was 3 for 4 with four RBIs and a homer and Miguel Sano also went deep for the Twins (34-16), who reached double-digit runs for the fourth time in their last eight games and became only the second team in baseball history to hit the 100-homer mark in just 50 games. They have the most runs (300) in the majors.
 
     Jose Berrios (7-2) was the latest beneficiary of the big swings, after falling behind 4-1. Rosario tied the game in the third with his 15th homer. Two batters later, Sano swatted a 2-2 changeup from Reynaldo Lopez (3-5) into the seats for his fifth long ball in seven games this season since coming off the injured list.
 
     Tim Anderson went 3 for 3 and Yonder Alonso drove in two runs for the White Sox.
 
     The Twins arrived home from a seven-game West Coast road swing extended by one day due to a rare California rainout in good spirits and in even better shape in the standings, winning three out of four in Seattle against the Mariners before sweeping the Los Angeles Angels. After outscoring their opponents 67-27 during the trip, the Twins built an eight-game lead in the American League Central over three-time defending division champion Cleveland. The Indians won Friday to keep pace.
 
     If there was a nit to pick, that was in the second when shortstop Jorge Polanco sidearmed a throw to first base after fielding a routine grounder by Eloy Jimenez and watched it sail over C.J. Cron's head for an error. That triggered a four-run inning against Berrios, though three of them were unearned.
 
     The last three starts by Berrios have been his worst three of 11 turns, with 29 hits and 13 runs allowed over 17 innings.
 
     HOMER HAPPY
 
     Seattle, with 600 home run club members Ken Griffey Jr. and Alex Rodriguez in the lineup in 1999, was the only team in history to reach triple-digit homers in 50 games, with 102, until the Twins joined them. The major league season record was set by the New York Yankees last year with 267.
 
     TRAINER'S ROOM
 
     Twins: DH Nelson Cruz was eligible for reinstatement from the injured list, but the Twins opted for caution with his strained left wrist.  
 
     UP NEXT
 
     White Sox: LHP Manny Banuelos (2-3, 7.26 ERA) was slated to come off the injured list and start this afternoon after the minimum 10-day stay. He was shelved with a strained left shoulder.
 
     Twins: RHP Kyle Gibson (4-2, 4.47) will take the mound in the middle game of the series. He's 7-4 with a 2.93 ERA and 84 strikeouts in 92 innings over 14 career starts against the White Sox.

     Anthony Rizzo homered for the third straight game, and Kyle Schwarber and Kris Bryant also went deep to help Chicago take an early 4-0 lead. Pinch-hitter Willson Contreras singled home Rizzo in the eighth to put the Cubs ahead, 5-4 before Suarez won it for the Reds with his 14th homer of the year.

     Also on Friday's major league schedule:

Walker Buehler cruised after being given the early cushion, allowing one run and five hits over six frames.

     - Hunter Renfroe hit a tiebreaking, three-run home run in the eighth inning of the Padres' 6-3 win at Toronto. Greg Garcia and Austin Hedges also went deep in San Diego's fourth straight win. Toronto became the first team to start two players with Hall of Fame fathers after calling up Cavan Biggio started at second alongside third baseman Vladimir Guerrero Jr.

     - Andrew McCutchen doubled home a pair in the sixth inning to give the Phillies a 5-4 edge in a 6-4 verdict over the Brewers.

     - Dansby Swanson homered twice and Freddie Freeman also connected in the Braves' 5-2 win at St. Louis.

     - The Tigers followed their 0-9 homestand by blowing a 4-0 lead before beating the Mets, 9-8 in New York.

     - Juan Soto and Matt Adams hit back-to-back home runs in a four-run eighth that sent the Nationals to a 12-10 victory against the Marlins. Soto's three-run blast off Marlins reliever Tayron Guerrero was his eighth homer of the season and put the Nationals ahead for the first time at 11-9. Anthony Rendon belted a two-run blast as Washington halted a five-game skid and snapped Miami's six-game winning streak.

     - Trevor Story's second two-run homer of the night was a walk-off blast in the ninth inning of the Rockies' 8-6 triumph over the Orioles. Nolan Arenado also went deep twice for the Rockies in the opener of a season-long, 10-game homestand. Colorado trailed 6-3 until Story and Arenado hit consecutive homers in the seventh.

     - The Twins won for the ninth time in 10 games as Eddie Rosario went 4 for 5 with three RBIs and one of Minnesota's three home runs in an 11-4 assault on the White Sox. Max Kepler was 3 for 4 with a homer and four RBIs, while teammate Miguel Sano also went deep as the Twins improved to a major league-best 34-16. Jose Berrios improved to 7-2 despite spotting Chicago an early 4-1 lead.

     - Jake Marisnick homered early off Chris Sale and made two dazzling defensive plays in center field to help the Astros preserve a 4-3 win over the Red Sox. Wade Miley gave up two runs and scattered four hits over six innings, striking out a season-high eight to win his fourth straight decision. Ryan Pressly's MLB-record streak of 40 straight scoreless appearances ended when Jackie Bradley Jr. homered in the eighth on the first pitch from the Houston reliever.

     - It's now a seven-game winning streak for the Athletics after Matt Olson and Mark Canha hit back-to-back home runs in the fourth inning of a 6-2 downing of the Mariners. Stephen Piscotty also homered and singled twice to extend his on-base streak to 22 games. The Mariners left the bases loaded three times and stranded 15 runners overall in their fourth straight loss.

     - Roberto Perez supplied the tiebreaking RBI by hitting an infield single with two out in the eighth inning of the Indians' 3-1 win over the Rays. Jordan Luplow homered in the fourth off Nate Snell, who gave up just four hits over 6 2/3 innings. Shane Bieber matched Snell with his second straight dominant outing, striking out 10 in five innings to help Cleveland end a four-game skid.

     - Hunter Pence provided a two-run single in the seventh inning to push the Rangers past the Angels, 4-3. Drew Smyly went six innings to get his first win since Sept. 13, 2016 for Tampa Bay, yielding three runs on five hits. Shin-Soo Choo homered as the Rangers won for the seventh time in eight games.
