Odorizzi outduels Verlander as Twins beat Astros

MINNEAPOLIS—Jake Odorizzi punched out Yuli Gurriel looking, and the usually stoic right-hander couldn't help but clench his fist and let out a yell.

Odorizzi and the Minnesota Twins made another early season statement.

Odorizzi pitched seven solid innings to outduel Justin Verlander, Ehire Adrianza homered off Houston's ace and Minnesota beat the Astros 1-0 last night.

Jays hold off Twins for second-straight win

MINNEAPOLIS—Even with Josh Donaldson missing 16 games on the disabled list, Jose Bautista gone, and Kendrys Morales off to a slow start, the Toronto Blue Jays are powering up again and supplying the offence they've become used to north of the border.

Justin Smoak and Russell Martin homered, and Yangervis Solarte had three hits, as Toronto topped the Minnesota Twins 7-5 last night.
