No-hit bid a thrill for White Sox catcher Omar Narvaez

No-hit bid a thrill for White Sox catcher Omar Narvaez

Minnesota Twins left fielder Eddie Rosario (20) high fives Minnesota Twins right fielder Max Kepler (26) after the Minnesota Twins beat the Chicago White Sox 8-4 at Guaranteed Rate Field. The Twins and the White Sox combined for only 14 hits.

Making his second start of the season, Hector Santiago lasted only 31/3 innings and allowed eight runs on six hits and six walks.

Odorizzi allowed five runs — three earned — and six hits in 5 1/3 innings. "I think he's going to get out there and see what he can do", manager Paul Molitor said.

"I've been tinkering with some stuff, just not overthinking and having an obtainable goal", Thompson said.

"Everybody was just watching him do his thing", manager Rick Renteria said.

You could do a lot worse than a guy who's been to a pair of World Series as a mentor for your young arms. "I'm sure they all enjoyed watching it".

The White Sox placed INF Yoan Moncada (left hamstring tightness) on the 10-day disabled list and recalled infielder Jose Rondon from Triple-A Charlotte.


Dodgers 3, Padres 0 - At Monterrey, Mexico: Eric Hosmer hit a go-ahead, two-run homer for the second straight day, rookie Eric Lauer got his first major league win and San Diego took two of three in Major League Baseball's first regular-season series in Mexico since 1999.

"I wasn't thinking about [a no-hitter] until the end there", Shields said. "It was 5-1. At that point anything less than a home run keeps the momentum with us. It was a good effort, but we came up short".

Rosario's outburst provided more than enough run support for right-hander Lance Lynn (1-3), who earned his first win since signing a one-year deal with the Twins at the start of spring training. His changeup has been an effective pitch.

Narvaez said Shields' best pitch was his changeup. "I learned a lot from it previous year". This time he threw two flawless innings, stranding a Volstad runner in the process. But after I got loose, after the first song, I was good to go. Joe Mauer, hitting leadoff for the second day in a row, was 2-for-3 with two walks.

Jimenez homered for the sixth time in only 17 games with the Barons. The Twins posted back-to-back victory from the first time since April 12. It was his longest outing of the season, and he's now gone at least six innings in the last three starts. Gibson is 1-1 with a 3.38 ERA and 36 strikeouts.

For Shields, his proudest accomplishment Sunday - after he lost the no-no, he gave up three runs in what ended as a 5-3 loss for the home team - was working deep into the game.
