Jose Berrios didn’t get 2,000 of anything, but he pitched seven shutout innings, striking out 11 and not walking a single batter. He’s 2-1 this season, and his ERA is 2.18. Yes, it’s early.
BY THE NUMBERS
2,000 Joe Mauer got his 2,000th hit, joining Kirby Puckett, Harmon Killebrew and Rod Carew as hitters who achieved that with the Twins.
.412 Oh by the way, that’s Mauer’s batting average this young season.
3 Hits by the White Sox, not a one from the top four batters in the lineup.
2 Stolen bases by Twins outfielder Byron Buxton.
