Minnesota Twins

Twins belt three home runs, dust Mariners 10-2 in home opener

But with a large group of fans rooting for the Twins in person at Target Field for the first time in the COVID-19 pandemic, a little hyperbole is understandable.

He certainly put his strength on display on the first pitch he saw from Mariners starter Marco Gonzales, smacking a double down the left-field line.

The fans acknowledged his outing — he picked up his second victory by throwing 5⅔ innings and striking out eight, giving up five hits, two runs and three walks — with a standing ovation as he doffed his hat.

I told my wife when I pitched in Milwaukee, I said in a kidding way I was scared when they started rooting for the hitters," said Berrios, who had six no-hit innings against the Brewers on Saturday.

He mentioned some antics near the outfield, possibly a raucous group who couldn't get enough of left fielder Kyle Garlick's every move.

Nolan Walker redirected a shot from the point with 53 seconds remaining, sending the Huskies to their first NCAA title game.
