Sonny day: Gray’s 7 shutout innings send Twins past Tigers


MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Sonny Gray compiled a season-high 10 strikeouts over seven sharp innings, carrying the Minnesota Twins past the Detroit Tigers 2-0 for their sixth straight victory.

Gray allowed four hits and one walk in by far his best of six starts with his new team.

The Twins are 23-8 since April 21. They have won each of the last four games with Gray on the mound after he returned from a strained hamstring.

Gray on going seven strong innings:

Gio Urshela had three hits and an RBI, and Carlos Correa hit an RBI double for the Twins against Tigers rookie Beau Brieske.
