Twins' Sonny Gray: Blanks Tigers over seven

Gray (2-1) earned the win Tuesday after he pitched seven scoreless, giving up four hits and a walk while striking out 10 versus the Tigers. Gray was dominant Tuesday, allowing only one extra-base hit while striking out a season-high 10 batters. The outing was his longest of the campaign and he has allowed two or fewer runs in all six of his starts on the year. Since returning from the injured list May 6, Gray has posted a 1.69 ERA and 1.08 WHIP with 30 strikeouts over 21.1 frames in four starts. His season-long numbers now stand at a 2.60 ERA and 1.12 WHIP over six outings. The 32-year-old tentatively lines up to toe the rubber Sunday versus the Royals.

Is Yankees’ Joey Gallo going to get ‘Sonny Gray’d?’

That Joey Gallo “hot streak” appears to have subsided. The embattled Yankees outfielder has been more productive — he’s hitting a robust .209 in his last 15 games. But he just went 0-for-13 with a walk and eight strikeouts during a just-completed four game series at the Orioles. It’s an output that again begs the question: How much longer can they keep running this guy out there?

Twins vs. A’s prediction: Bet on Minnesota, Sonny Gray

Ever Ready. Pitcher Adam Wainwright and catcher Yadier Molina have won 203 games together and are the most successful batterymates in MLB history. Never Ready. President Joe Biden and his Veep Kamala Harris can’t get a win and a new NBC poll shows the batterymates’ approval rating has reached a new low, 39 percent. The new figure does not account for the little ones waiting for their formula to be restocked. The White House says the crisis will ease and there are indications to suggest they are correct. Baby Bratz Johnny Depp and Amber Heard appear to be well fed. Sonny Gray...

Twins' Sonny Gray: Earns first win

Gray (1-1) allowed two earned runs on six hits and no walks while striking out five across six innings to earn the win Wednesday against the Athletics. Gray allowed a run in each of the first and third innings, but he retired the last 10 batters he faced to turn in a solid performance. He induced eight groundouts, though he backed up his five strikeouts with only four swinging strikes across 84 total pitches. Even so, the performance was a step forward for Gray, as he turned in his longest outing of the campaign. Overall, he has a 3.48 ERA with a 25:9 K:BB across 20.2 frames this season.
