Twins, Jays look to win rubber match of weekend series

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.”
