After splitting two lopsided games, the visiting Minnesota Twins and the Toronto Blue Jays will play the rubber match of their three-game series on Sunday afternoon.
The Blue Jays posted a 12-3 victory on Saturday as former Twins right-hander Jose Berrios recorded a career-best 13 strikeouts. Minnesota traded Berrios to Toronto on July 30.
Berrios allowed two runs in seven innings, lowering his earned-run average from 5.62 to 5.24. He had allowed six runs in 2 1/3 innings on May 29 in a no-decision against the Los Angeles Angels.
“I was encouraged because he was throwing 94-95 (mph),” Blue Jays manager Charlie Montoyo said. “What happened in Anaheim, he had a dead arm. Not making excuses for him, but he was 90-91, so it was a big difference.”
