The Twins finished off the White Sox in 2 hours, 14 minutes Thursday with Jose Berrios throwing a complete game. Berrios is the guy you want on the mound for a game with good pace: Six of the eight fastest Twins games this season — all 2:45 or shorter — have been Berrios starts.
Golden State can sweep the Cavaliers with another victory in Cleveland on Friday. A blowout in either direction would not be surprising. 8p.m., Ch. 5.
"Well, many omniscient commenters called this lineup 'total system failure' and akin to 'waving the white flag' and other doomsday predictions. Then they go out and smoke Shields while Berrios is terrific. Baseball is far less predictable than other major sports."

"Nick Saban said he takes baths in the lake during the summer with Ivory soap 'because it floats.' Said Miss Terry hates it."
