Five observations Carson Fulmer roughed up despite showing tools for success

The Twins defeated the White Sox 6-4. Updates with new lead.

As has been the case for the most of the year, Sánchez was on point, and on Sunday, Shields was too, holding the Twins hitless for 6 1/3 innings despite not even hitting 91 miles per hour, and scrapping together the longest White Sox no-hit bid since José Quintana kept the magic going for an equally long stretch in 2013. The Twins posted back-to-back victory from the first time since April 12. The veteran right-hander retired the first 16 Minnesota batters and led 2-0, but the Sox dropped a season-worst 14 games below.500 and couldn't avoid their third straight defeat and fifth consecutive lost series at Guaranteed Rate Field to start the year. The Sox's shortstop hit solo shots in the seventh and ninth innings, giving him six for the season.

Two double plays came in handy, holding Chicago to single runs in two innings where they had a total of seven hits, including three doubles. Shields comes in off of a 3-2 loss (ND) against St. Louis with a run given up on two hits over six frames. He received little interest on the free-agent market before signing a one-year, $12 million deal with the Twins a month into spring training.

"I feel great", he said. "I just go out and have fun, and when it's not going well, just continue to go". After inducing an inning-ending double play by Daniel Palka in the first inning, Lynn let out a yell.

Ten-man Barcelona have earned a 2-2 draw against Real Madrid at Camp Nou this evening to keep their unbeaten La Liga run intact. Suarez started and finished off a quick attack when he played Roberto clear down the hole left by Marcelo on the right flank.

"Maybe if they're in the regular defensive format, then maybe I'm not able to get off (the base) as much", Mauer said. "I was trying to figure out which way to go, trying to make that adjustment, and I just kind of never figured that out". "When I got back home to Minnesota, I worked on my approach and my hitting to left field. Play hard and swing at strikes".

Garcia, who had two hits, slugged his first home run of the season in the fourth.

Santiago allowed six hits and six walks before being replaced by Chris Volstad with one out in the fourth.

"You're always learning something", Renteria said. "Obviously, they jumped on us pretty early".

So along the coastline where that flank of the island moves, the tsunami is nearly onshore immediately after the quake . At the same time, erupting lava has already reached the city and began to destroy buildings and local infrastructure.

Both teams have hit 15 home runs over their last 10 outings. Leadoff doubles in the third (Adam Engel) and the sixth (Yolmer Sanchez) led to single runs off Gibson, who left at 102 pitches with the tying run at second.

"I was really, really blown away, impressed, surprised by how well he's doing", Morrison told Minnesota beat reporters. "They think it's amusing, but it's not amusing".

"The at-bats in the first inning were good", said manager Paul Molitor. He had surgery the next day and still is recovering at Rush. Santana threw 30 pitches on the side on Friday.

The Twins are looking to win a four-game series today after they have won the last two nights against the White Sox. He has yet to throw off a mound since being placed on the DL retroactive to April 19.
