BY THE NUMBERS

8 Twins victories when scoring three or fewer runs, compared to 42 such losses.

18 Consecutive hitless at-bats by Miguel Sano, a streak ended with a third-deck home run.

0 Losses by the A’s when leading after seven innings (they are 55-0), the only MLB team that is still perfect.

ON DECK
