Santana throws two-hitter for Twins

Tillman allowed six of the first seven hitters to reach on four hits and two walks, with the key hits in the inning being Kennys Vargas' two-run single and Eduardo Escobar's ensuing RBI single.

Santana (7-2) struck out five, walked two and retired the final 14 batters with only 42 pitches.

The Minnesota Twins began their 3-game road series against the Baltimore Orioles on Monday. Now 16-5 on the road, the Twins on Wednesday will seek to complete their first three-game sweep in Baltimore since 1996.

Dylan Bundy (5-3) pitched well for the Orioles, but Santana was better.

Red Sox 11, Rangers 6 • Xander Bogaerts had three hits and three RBIs, Dustin Pedroia had a two-run double during a four-run seventh inning and Boston beat visiting Texas.

Iglesias, who scored three runs, doubled to lead off the eighth. The Tigers cut the lead to one on a two-run homer by Mikie Mahtook in the seventh inning before Centeno singled and scored as Houston tacked on two runs in the bottom of that inning to push the lead to 5-2.

It was Minnesota's fourth sweep of the season - matching their total of all last season.

Maybin led off by homering on a 3-1 pitch from Alex Cobb (4-4). This one involved a comeback against a team that came into the game with a 15-4 mark at home.

Right-hander Chris Tillman struggled out of the gate, allowing three runs in a 36-pitch first inning.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - Steven Souza Jr. homered twice to rally Tampa Bay past Los Angeles. He is coming off a stellar start against the Rockies on Thursday, when he tossed 7 2/3 shutout innings of two-hit ball. Minnesota sent 11 batters to the plate in a six-run sixth, and Sano added a two-run homer in the ninth.

Greinke (6-2) allowed just one run and four hits while striking out a season-high 12 and walking one.

Paul Goldschmidt hit a solo homer for the D-backs and went 2-for-4.

Zach Eflin (0-2) was roughed up by Blackmon and the Rockies. "They kept the solo home run in play today and usually when pitchers do that, you usually give yourself a chance to win".

The Twins answered by scoring in each of the next three innings and knocking Jimenez out of the game with a four-run fifth that tied the score and left room to wonder whether any early-inning advantage would be big enough at the moment. They scored just a single run the rest of the night, capping off a 14-7 laugher of a loss that had started off so promisingly. The Royals, with the worst record in the AL, have lost five of seven.

Mike Zunino homered off Ross (2-0) in his return from his own minor league stint.

Tucker Barnhart went 2-for-3 with a double for the Reds, who won for just the second time in 10 games.

Brandon Belt also connected and Ty Blach pitched into the eighth inning in the first meeting between the teams since San Francisco was eliminated by Chicago in the NL Division Series previous year. Young Twins starter Jose Berrios has spent the early parts of this season looking like he's living up to some of his prospect hype.

In 29 games with San Diego this season, Sardinas batted.163 with an RBI.
