CHICAGO – Jose Berrios is a stay-at-home kind of guy. He used the Twins' final road game of the 2020 regular season to try to keep it that way.

Berrios shut out the Cubs for six innings, Max Kepler hit his first home run in almost four weeks, and Josh Donaldson contributed two hits and the game's biggest defensive play. It added up to a 4-0 victory at Wrigley Field, a win that moves the Twins back into a home-field-advantage spot in the AL playoff seeding.

The Yankees' 10-game winning streak ended with a 10-2 loss in Boston on Sunday, and the Twins took advantage, moving one game ahead of New York in the battle for the best record among second-place teams, which comes with the right to host the entire best-of-three first-round series next week.
