Sano, Donaldson, Cruz homer in Twins’ Game 1 win in St. Louis

Josh Donaldson, Nelson Cruz and Miguel Sanó all homered to lead the Minnesota Twins to a 7-3 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals in the first game of a doubleheader.

Starter Jose Berríos pitched into the sixth inning for the win. Carlos Martinez was chased in the fourth in his first start since missing more than a month because of the coronavirus.

The two-game series at Busch Stadium was condensed to one day so the Cardinals could have one more day off before the end of the season, with a backlog of makeup games this month.
