HOUSTON - Jose Berrios recorded his first career victory and was backed by the slugging of Brian Dozier and Byung Ho Park as the Minnesota Twins took the opener of their three-game series with the Houston Astros 6-2 on Monday night at Minute Maid Park.
Dozier finished 3 for 5 with a double and two runs while Park went 2 for 3 with a walk and his first career triple to carry the Twins (8-18) offensively. Minnesota won on the road for the second time this season.
Berrios (1-1) was victorious in his second career start. The highest-drafted pitcher ever born in Puerto Rico, Berrios allowed a pair of solo home runs while pitching into the sixth inning. He struck out eight against five walks and three hits, tossing 96 pitches en route to the win.
Preston Tucker and George Springer clubbed their third and sixth homers, respectively, to supply the Astros offense.
