    MINNEAPOLIS (AP) ? Minnesota?s pitching staff has finally caught up in the strikeout era http://www.stlouiscardinalsteamshop....l-ozuna-jersey , with Jose Berrios leading the way.Berrios became the first Twins pitcher in eight years to reach 200 strikeouts, throwing seven smooth innings in a 2-1 victory over the Chicago White Sox in the first game of a doubleheader before Mitch Garver?s career-high six RBIs fueled a 12-4 victory for the sweep on Friday night.Berrios finished his All-Star season with a career-best 3.84 ERA and 202 strikeouts. The last time a Twins pitcher topped that milestone was Francisco Liriano (201) in 2010, with Johan Santana (235) prior to that in 2007.?That was one of my goals before the season started,? Berrios said. ?That?s when I wrote it down, and I accomplished it and I?m thankful to God for that.?Berrios (12-11) struck out nine batters , allowing just three hits and one run on Leury Garcia?s RBI single in the third. Berrios walked four, including Avisail Garcia to lead off the sixth, but he followed that by fanning Daniel Palka, Matt Davidson and Omar Narvarez in a 10-pitch span to finish the inning with his fastball buzzing.?Pretty special kid,? White Sox manager Rick Renteria said. ?Nice mix of pitches. Breaking ball was diving Kolten Wong Jersey , sinking. He?s got a quick arm. Just kept us off balance.?The Twins are 16th in the major leagues in strikeouts, after finishing next-to-last in 2017. From 2011 through 2015, they were last.Though Berrios had a 4.15 ERA and just a 3-4 record in 12 starts after the All-Star break, the right-hander took another step toward being the ace at the top of the rotation the Twins have lacked since Santana was traded 11 years ago.?I want to be one of the best pitchers in the league,? Berrios said. ?I think I have the material to do that and to be the best pitcher on this team, so that Minnesota can construct around me and build a winning team.?Reynaldo Lopez (7-10) turned in another strong start in the opener for the White Sox, save for matching his season high with five walks over six innings. Tyler Austin?s RBI groundout in the first and Willians Astudillo?s sacrifice fly in the sixth were all the Twins needed to take a game that was originally scheduled for the mid-April weekend when they had three straight games postponed by a snowstorm.Joe Mauer, facing an offseason decision about whether or not to retire at age 35, went 2 for 4 in each game and is batting .362 (21 for 58) over his last 14 starts while reaching base at least once in each.Astudillo has 16 RBIs in his last 15 games for the Twins, who improved to 47-32 at home. They?re 28-12 since June 24 Trevor Rosenthal Jersey , the fifth-best record in MLB in that span.The White Sox, who fell to 8-17 in September, would lose 100 games for the first time since 1970 if they don?t win Saturday or Sunday. They were 63-99 in 2013.NIGHT MOVESGarver went 4 for 5 with doubles to fuel Twins starter Chase DeJong (1-1) in his first major league victory with six strong innings, despite solo home runs by Jose Rondon and Kevan Smith. Robbie Grossman went 2 for 4 with three RBIs for the Twins.Lucas Giolito (10-13) gave up seven runs in 1 1/3 innings for the White Sox, pushing his MLB-worst ERA to 6.13. Hector Santiago threw 97 pitches in relief, allowing seven hits, two walks and one hit batter in 4 2/3 innings.?This leaves a bad taste in my mouth,? Giolito said. ?Definitely a lot to work on in the offseason.?WHIFFING WHITIESThe White Sox struck out 18 times during the doubleheader, raising their season total to an MLB-most 1,570. That?s also only one less than the all-time record last year by the Milwaukee Brewers. Yoan Moncada has the team lead with 215 http://www.stlouiscardinalsteamshop....l-ozuna-jersey , followed by Davidson with 162.FINISHING STRONGLopez logged 40 innings over his last six starts, with a sparkling 1.13 ERA and 41 strikeouts. The 24-year-old finished with a 3.91 ERA in 188 2/3 innings.?I?m leaving this season in a much better way than how I entered the season,? Lopez said through a team interpreter. ?I learned a lot.?GIVING BACKThe last time the White Sox played in Minnesota, on Aug. 20, Renteria experienced light-headedness in the afternoon and was hospitalized overnight as a precaution. He wound up missing four games. As a thank-you to Hennepin County Medical Center staff for his care, Renteria sent popcorn and donated 200 tickets to children being treated at the facility.TRAINER?S ROOMWhite Sox: LF Nicky Delmonico, who hurt his shoulder on Tuesday, was a late addition to the second-game lineup in place of Adam Engel.Twins: Garver made his first start in 17 games in the nightcap, after recovering from concussion symptoms.?Peace of mind for myself and for the people that care about me,? Garver said.UP NEXTWhite Sox: LHP Carlos Rodon (6-7 Carlos Martinez Jersey , 3.61 ERA) will pitch in the third game of the series.Twins: RHP Kyle Gibson (9-13, 3.68 ERA) will start on Saturday night. Jessica Mendoza will have more of a presence on various ESPN platforms starting next baseball season.Mendoza signed a multiyear extension with ESPN to remain part of the ?Sunday Night Baseball? announcer?s booth and make more studio appearances.In 2015, Mendoza became the first female analyst for a nationally televised MLB game. She did her first Sunday night game on Aug. 30, 2015.?Being in New York for 10 days during the World Series and appearing on a bunch of shows, I felt like it was a trial run to have more of a studio presence,? Mendoza said in a phone interview with The Associated Press. ?The more consistently I started to do it, the more I grew to love it. It allows me to push baseball ideas and content in a bunch of different places.?Mendoza, who has been with the network since 2007, has already been a fixture on ?Baseball Tonight? for many seasons but the new agreement means she will appear more regularly on ?SportsCenter? and ?Get Up!?Mendoza?s main assignment will remain ?Sunday Night Baseball.? This will be her fourth full season but only her second working alongside Alex Rodriguez, Matt Vasgersian and Buster Olney. Mendoza said she quickly found a rapport with her boothmates. The Sunday night games will begin an hour earlier next season Lance Lynn Jersey , at 7 p.m. Eastern.?We do so many East Coast games that you worry about what time they are ending. Plus we had a lot of extra-inning games last season,? she said. ?The best part of games are during late innings, and hopefully this allows more people to tune in.?Mark Gross, ESPN?s senior vice president for production and remote events, lauded Mendoza?s work ethic and preparation as well as the relationships she?s formed with baseball executives, managers and players.Mendoza, who will be inducted into the National Softball Hall of Fame next year, will continue as a lead analyst during ESPN?s coverage of the Women?s College World Series. She was a four-time first-team All-American at Stanford and won gold (2004) and silver (2008) medals for the U.S. at the Olympics.?It?s just exciting to know this is going to keep going,? she said. ?I still feel like I am a rookie and learning. I get to continue with that growth.?
