AMERICAN LEAGUE ROUNDUP : White Sox and Raines Top the Twins, 10-5

April 07, 1993|From Associated Press

Tim Raines hit a three-run homer during a six-run fourth inning to power the White Sox to a 10-5 victory over the Twins on Tuesday, giving Chicago its seventh successive win in a season opener.

Jack McDowell, 20-10 last season, gave up seven hits in six innings in the game at Minneapolis, including two-run home runs by Kirby Puckett and Dave Winfield. He also walked five but still won for the 47th time since the 1990 All-Star break, more than any other big-league pitcher in that span.

Kevin Tapani's string of wins in home openers ended at three. He allowed eight hits and nine runs, eight earned, in 3 1/3 innings as his career ERA against Chicago ballooned to 6.59.

Seattle 8, Toronto 1--Randy Johnson had 14 strikeouts, giving up one run and seven hits over eight innings, to lead the Mariners.

Ken Griffey hit a three-run homer and Rich Amaral went three for four with two RBIs for the Mariners. Joe Carter went two for two and drove in the lone Toronto run before leaving in the third inning with an injured groin.
