Minnesota Twins 6
Houston Astros 2
The Minnesota Twins snapped their four-game losing streak as they beat the Houston Astros 6-2 to open a three-game series in Houston.
1. Big night for Berrios
Highly-touted Twins rookie Jose Berrios (1-1) picked up his first Major League win on Monday night. He tossed 5.1 innings, while striking out eight. He held the Astros to two runs, while pitching around five walks.
2. Patience pays off
Twins hitters have been criticized this season for striking out too much and not being patient at the plate. However, on Monday night going up against reigning Cy Young Award winner Dallas Keuchel (2-4) Twins hitters drew five walks.
Including three alone in the three-run fourth inning.
3. Dozier gets going
It probably was no coincidence that on Brian Dozier's second three-hit game of the season, the Twins also picked up their second road victory.
Dozier was 3-for-5 with two runs scored.

Alex Meyer will make his first Major League start on Tuesday night against Collin McHugh (2-3) for the Astros.
