ST. LOUIS (AP) - Jake Odorizzi pitched five strong innings and Eduardo Escobar had a two-run homer as Minnesota won its season-high fifth straight game. 

The win capped a two-game series sweep for the Twins, who have won 14 of their last 17 games against National League teams. 

Odorizzi (3-2) allowed just two hits and one run, a homer by St. Louis' Jose Martinez in the first inning. The right-hander combined with three relievers to retire the final 18 batters of the game. 

Carlos Martinez (3-2) saw his stretch of six straight starts allowing one or fewer runs end.
