Jose Berrios got all the run support he would need when Brian Dozier led off Sunday's game with a home run as the Twins went on to blank the Orioles 7-0. 

Dozier would homer again, as would Eduardo Escobar and Miguel Sano, who homered in Saturday's win, too. 

Berrios, meanwhile, kept the Twins starting staff red-hot with a complete-game shutout. The right-hander allowed just 3 hits and 1 walk while striking out 6. 

Berrios' gem comes on the heels of Kyle Gibson's 6 hitless innings on Saturday and Jake Odorizzi's 6-inning, 2-hit gem. 

Through three games, Minnesota's starters have allowed a combined 5 hits and zero runs in 21 innings. 

The Twins start a two-game series in Pittsburgh on Monday before returning to Minneapolis for their Home Opener Thursday against the Mariners.
