CHICAGO (AP) — Luke Hughes’ three-run homer capped a six-run fourth Friday night and the Minnesota Twins continued their mastery of the Chicago White Sox, rallying for an 8-5 victory.

 

The Twins are 6-0 against the White Sox this season, have won nine straight in the series going back to last year and are 28-6 in the past 34 games between the two AL Central foes.

 

The White Sox scored five runs in the first, but starter Gavin Floyd couldn’t hold the 5-1 lead and was driven out after 3 2-3 innings when Rene Tosoni hit a bases-loaded single to tie it.

 

Hughes greeted reliever Will Ohman with a long three-run homer to left, his third homer of the season, to put the Twins up 8-5.

 

Floyd (6-9), winless in six starts since June 1, gave up nine hits and was charged with seven runs.
