MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Phil Hughes tossed eight strong innings and the Minnesota Twins beat Chris Sale for the third time this season, overcoming 10 more strikeouts by the Chicago White Sox ace in a 6-1 victory Wednesday.

Sale (6-4) reached double digits in strikeouts for the seventh straight game. He was trying to become the first pitcher in modern major league history with at least 12 in six consecutive starts.

The left-hander’s streak of innings with at least one strikeout was stopped at 38 in a row when the Twins hit three doubles in a three-run fourth to give Hughes (6-6) the lead for good.

Sale is 1-3 with a 6.46 ERA in four turns against the Twins this season. Against everyone else in the majors, he is 5-1 with a 1.88 ERA in 10 starts.
