Twins down White Sox 5-2, spoil Kopech's debut

CHICAGO (AP) A little rain cut short Michael Kopech's anticipated big league debut Tuesday night. Couldn't damper his spirits, though.

Eddie Rosario led the Minnesota Twins to a 5-2 victory, but not before Kopech pitched two scoreless innings in a rain-shortened start and gave Chicago a glimpse of a potentially promising future.

"It was a dream come true," Kopech said. "It was everything I thought about since I was a little kid. I was pumped."
