MINNEAPOLIS — Miguel Sano hit a three-run home run, Jose Berrios went strong into the seventh inning and the Minnesota Twins beat New York 6-1 on Wednesday to win their first home series against the Yankees in nine years.

Berrios (9-3) allowed only one run, his fewest in 11 starts, on a two-out single by Brett Gardner in the seventh before being removed.

Berrios improved to 6-0 in seven afternoon turns this season and helped drop the Yankees to 0-8-2 in their past 10 series.

Zack Granite sparked a six-run surge by the Twins in the second inning against Yankees starter Jordan Montgomery (6-5) with a two-run single, his first major league RBI.

Eduardo Escobar tacked on an RBI single before Sano crushed an 0-2 curveball into the bullpen for a 6-0 lead. The All-Star has 23 homers this year.

ATHLETICS 7, RAYS 2: Sonny Gray struck out six pitching into the seventh in what might have been his final home start in Oakland if the club tries to deal him before the trade deadline, and the host Athletics rallied in the fifth inning to beat Tampa Bay.

Matt Joyce hit a towering homer to the right-field seats in the eighth for Oakland.

Rajai Davis doubled home Oakland’s first run in the fifth, then Joyce followed with a tying sacrifice fly before Davis scurried home with the go-ahead run on a wild pitch.

Gray (6-4) won his third straight start and fourth in five.

ORIOLES 10, RANGERS 2: Kevin Gausman pitched six innings of four-hit ball, Adam Jones homered and scored three runs, and Baltimore beat faltering Texas at home.

Trey Mancini contributed two hits in a seven-run seventh inning, including a bases-loaded triple, and Jonathan Schoop finished with three hits and three RBI.

Having thus far outscored Texas 25-4 in the series, the Orioles will attempt to complete a four-game sweep Thursday.

MARINERS 4, ASTROS 1: James Paxton had another strong start against host Houston and rookie Ben Gamel powered the offense with a two-run homer to give Seattle a win. Paxton (9-3) allowed six hits and one run in seven innings.


CUBS 8, BRAVES 2: Mike Montgomery hit his first home run, and allowed two hits and one run in six innings to lead streaking Chicago at Atlanta.

PIRATES 3, BREWERS 2: Max Moroff got his first career game-ending hit with a single in the 10th inning, lifting host Pittsburgh over Milwaukee.
