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.
