Minnesota Twins 6  Tampa Bay Rays 2: A bottom dwellers battle was decided by a pinch hit home run by Eddie Rosario, grabbing the lead in the 7th, followed by Miguel Sano hitting a home run, signaling the bad days for him might be over.

Baltimore Orioles 7  Chicago White Sox 5: Adam Jones, Manny Machado and J.J.
