The Chicago White Sox catcher hit his second grand slam in three games during Friday night's 7-2 victory over the Los Angeles Angels.

Kepler, Schoop HRs lift Twins by Rangers

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) The Minnesota Twins did what they do better than any other major league team this season - hit home runs - but their 4-3 win over the Texas Rangers on Friday night turned on a fly ball that barely cleared the infield.

Max Kepler hit a two-run homer in the fourth inning after Miguel Sano's popup to shallow right field was dropped by Rougned Odor and Jonathan Schoop hit a two-run homer in the sixth to erase a one-run deficit for the Twins, who lead in the AL Central by 1 1/2 games over the Cleveland Indians.
