    MINNESOTA TWINS

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Lucas Giolito pitched a three-hit shutout of the second-highest scoring team in the major leagues, racking up 12 strikeouts for the Chicago White Sox in a 4-0 victory over Minnesota today to take the series from the first-place Twins.
 
     Giolito (14-6) allowed only runner past first base, a double by Jonathan Schoop in the eighth. The 25-year-old fanned Jake Cave to finish that inning and reach double-digit strikeouts for the third straight time, the first White Sox starter to do so since Chris Sale did so in eight consecutive turns in 2015. The last right-hander with a streak that long for the team was Edwin Jackson, with three in a row in 2010.
 
     Jose Abreu went 3 for 5 with two RBIs for the White Sox from his usual third spot in the lineup, with Leury Garcia and Tim Anderson each producing two hits from their places in front of him. The first three batters scored all four runs against Twins starter Jake Odorizzi (13-6), who was outdone by his fellow American League All-Star.
 
     Giolito matched Cleveland's Shane Bieber for the major league lead with his third complete game of the season. The White Sox and Indians have a baseball-best five apiece. Giolito got his with 115 pitches, without a walk.
 
     The Twins were blanked for the third time this year, all at home and also on April 30 by Houston and June 17 by Boston. They took a three-game lead on the Indians in the AL Central into the day. This 13-game stretch entirely against the third-place White Sox and fifth-place Detroit Tigers that began this week looked like a favorable spot on the schedule, but losing two out of three at home to the White Sox was another reminder that solid starting pitching can make quite the difference, even if there's a considerable difference between two teams in the standings.
 
     The Twins fell to 8-5 against the White Sox this season. They have lost seven consecutive weekday games with afternoon start times.
 
     The White Sox are aiming to be next year where the Twins are now, and if they can make a big jump in 2020, Giolito will surely be a major factor. He has deftly rebounded from a rough road from late June to late July with a strong August, producing his fifth straight quality start of six innings or more and three runs or fewer.
 
     TRAINER'S ROOM
 
     Twins: LF Eddie Rosario was removed from the game after the fifth inning as a precaution due to tightness in his right hamstring.
 
     UP NEXT
 
     Twins: After an off day, the Twins begin a three-game series against Detroit on Friday night with RHP Jose Berrios (10-6, 3.37 ERA) on the mound. Berrios has an 8.44 ERA over his last three turns, with 22 hits, eight walks and five homers allowed in 16 innings. The Tigers have yet to announce their starter.

    MINNESOTA WILD-GM

    MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Minnesota Wild have hired Bill Guerin, who won two Stanley Cups as a player and two more titles in the front office with the Pittsburgh Penguins, as their new general manager.
 
     Guerin was announced today as the fourth GM in the team's 19-year history, three weeks after predecessor Paul Fenton was fired by owner Craig Leipold. Guerin spent the last five seasons as assistant general manager of the Penguins, who won consecutive Stanley Cups in 2016 and 2017. He worked three years in player development prior to that for the club he skated for in the final two of his 18 seasons as an NHL player. He was on Pittsburgh's title-winning team in 2009.
 
     The 48-year-old Guerin had 429 goals and 427 assists in 1,263 career games with eight different teams. He also won a Stanley Cup in 1995 with the New Jersey Devils.

     MLB-BRAVES-MCCANN

     ATLANTA (AP) - The Atlanta Braves have placed catcher Brian McCann on the 10-day injured list with a left knee sprain. Catcher Alex Jackson was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett before the team's game against the Miami Marlins. McCann left Tuesday night's 5-1 win over the Marlins after the third inning due to soreness in the knee. Tests on Wednesday revealed the sprain.

     The 23-year-old Jackson, who has hit .224 with 25 homers at Gwinnett, is making his second appearance of the season in Atlanta. He had no hits in 10 at-bats in three games from April 8-18 when McCann was out with a strained right hamstring.

     NFL-NEWS

     UNDATED (AP) - Miami Dolphins receiver Jakeem Grant is 5-foot-6, which means that under his new contract, he could be worth nearly $364,000 per inch. Grant signed a four-year extension today for up to $24 million through the 2023 season.

     One of the NFL's smallest and fastest players, Grant has three career touchdowns on returns, which ties the franchise record. He has only 34 career receptions for 471 yards and four touchdowns, but is expected to play a significant role in first-year coach Brian Flores' offense this season.

     Grant missed the final six games last year with a calf injury that required surgery but has fully recovered. He is entering the final year of his rookie contract and could have become a free agent in March.

     In other NFL news:

     - The New Orleans Saints have added linebacker Will Compton and offensive lineman Fisayo Awolaja to their training camp roster. The additions announced Wednesday come after the club waived reserve long snapper Nick Moore and placed offensive tackle Chris Clark on injured reserve. Clark was carted off the field with a right leg injury during Sunday's game against the Chargers in Los Angeles after being tangled up in a sack of Saints reserve quarterback Taysom Hill. The Saints have not specified the extent of his injuries. Compton spent his first five seasons in Washington, where he started 33 games. Last season, he played 12 games for Tennessee and started twice. Awolaja is an undrafted rookie out of Northern Colorado.
