CHICAGO (AP) — Royce Lewis set a franchise record with his fourth grand slam of the season in the Minnesota Twins’ 10-2 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Friday night. Matt Wallner, Max Kepler, Willi Castro and Ryan Jeffers added RBI singles to help the Twins (78-70) maintain their eight-game lead in the AL Central over the Cleveland Guardians. Minnesota got to Chicago early with help from Lewis in the second inning. The Twins loaded the bases with two outs before the rookie followed with a homer to left field for a 4-0 lead. Lewis, who entered Friday hitting .323 over his last 45 games, has five grand slams in 66 career games. Bailey Ober (7-6) was recalled from Triple-A St. Paul on Thursday and made his first start since Aug. 27. He went five innings and gave up two runs on five hits. He shut down the White Sox (56-92) until Elvis Andrus drove in Gavin Sheets with a two-run blast in the fifth. Ober won for the first time since July 18 when he pitched six innings against the Seattle Mariners. White Sox starter Jesse Scholtens (1-9) pitched four innings and gave up six runs (five earned) on seven hits and three walks. He has lost seven straight decisions.
LHP Pablo Lopez (10-7, 3.43 ERA) is slated to start for Minnesota today. RHP Touki Toussaint (3-7, 5.65) is Chicago’s probable starter.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Vikings started the season just six days ago. It’s literally slipping away. Thanks to the costly fumbles that have accounted for six of their seven turnovers, the Vikings have already taken two frustrating losses. “We have to go back and continue to find ways to re-emphasize how important it is when you have the football in your hands playing for the Minnesota Vikings,” coach Kevin O’Connell said after the 34-28 defeat Thursday in Philadelphia. “We’re really not giving ourselves clean opportunities to win these games the way that we started. I have to do a better job.” O’Connell said Friday his staff was already working on ways to practice ball security next week, including urging his defensive to be more aggressive about trying to knock it loose.
Punt returner Brandon Powell, running back Alexander Mattison, wide receiver Justin Jefferson and quarterback Kirk Cousins were the fumble culprits against the Eagles, after Cousins was charged with two in the 20-17 opening loss to Tampa Bay. Cousins also threw an interception against the Buccaneers. “I have to keep two hands on the ball as much as I can,” Cousins said. “As a passer it’s hard because you’re pulling your hand back, but going back to two hands on the ball as much as possible.”
The strangest part of this discouraging development for the Vikings is they haven’t recovered any of their fumbles. Jefferson’s went into the end zone and out of bounds late in the second quarter, giving the Eagles the ball on a touchback. The Eagles coughed one up themselves on a punt return at their 16 in the first quarter, but the Vikings didn’t jump on that one, either.
The 1959 Chicago Cardinals have the all-time record with 36 fumbles lost in their 12-game season, and the Vikings are on pace to match that in 12 games. The 1938 Chicago Bears and 1978 San Francisco 49ers share the NFL record with 56 fumbles, regardless of recovery. The Vikings actually share the NFL record for fewest fumbles lost, with just two in 2014 to match the Kansas City Chiefs (2002) and New Orleans Saints (2019). The Saints set the all-time record by fumbling the ball only six times in 2011, a dubious mark the Vikings have matched in two games.
