Jose Berrios goes the distance, Dozier homers twice as Twins blank Orioles

The took two of three games in Baltimore to start the season.

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.
