May hunkers down, helps Twins beat White Sox

May hunkers down, helps Twins beat White Sox CHICAGO -- Minnesota Twins rookie right-hander Trevor May could've crumbled in a tight situation Sunday afternoon at U.S. Cellular Field . Instead, he used a mound visit by pitching coach Rick Anderson to reset his pitch selection and escape a fourth-inning jam with three straight strikeouts in the Twins' 6-4 win against the Chicago White Sox.

MLB Notebook: Sale in rare AL company

In 1914, Red Sox southpaw Dutch Leonard engaged the American League to the tune of a 0.96 ERA , allowed batters to reach via a hit at a rate of 5.57 per nine innings pitched and fanned 20.9 percent of all batters he faced. All three marks led the AL -- quite an accomplishment for a hurler who was pitching in his age-22 season.
