The Twins defeated the White Sox 6-4. Updates with new lead.

As has been the case for the most of the year, Sánchez was on point, and on Sunday, Shields was too, holding the Twins hitless for 6 1/3 innings despite not even hitting 91 miles per hour, and scrapping together the longest White Sox no-hit bid since José Quintana kept the magic going for an equally long stretch in 2013.

The White Sox have lost six of their last seven games SU.

Minnesota (12-17) has won back-to-back games for the first time since April after knocking off Chicago on Friday and Saturday at Guaranteed Rate Field. His presence on this roster is a reminder of the win-now era before Rick Hahn's front office kickstarted the rebuild after that 2016 season. The Twins and the White Sox combined for only 14 hits.

Lance Lynn gave up eight hits and two runs while striking seven out in six innings. Minnesota tagged Hector Santiago (0-1) for eight runs in 3 1/3 innings.

Asked what his mindset was heading into the second inning, a 1-2-3 frame where he settled in and started to keep the Chicago offense at bay, he held his tongue. Omar Narvaez is starting behind the plate and hitting sixth against righty Kyle Gibson.

"It feels like a monkey off my back, truthfully", he said. "I think one of the of the best outings I've ever seen from him".

Eduardo Escobar singled to right center field for the Twins' first hit Sunday.

In general, the eighth inning was another educational moment for the Sox, who are 3-13 at home so far and have lost 11 games this season after leading.

"I felt really good", he said. I've been able to throw it a little bit more.

Logan Morrison's seventh-inning double off lefty reliever Luis Avilan left his bat at just 84.1 miles per hour, but it looped down the right-field line to score the tying and go-ahead runs in a seesaw game. His second career two-homer game gave him six this season. He allowed another hit in the seventh and was pulled with two outs in the inning.

As a unit, Chicago's pitching staff has allowed 5.5 runs per game overall in 2018. "He didn't have command throughout the whole ballgame. Obviously, they jumped on us pretty early". The Twins managed to score that go-ahead run without the benefit of a hit.

Shields was flawless through 5 1/3 innings before walking Ehire Adrianza. "They think it's amusing, but it's not amusing".
