CHICAGO (AP) – Gordon Beckham hit a two-run homer and Hector Santiago won in his first major league start as the Chicago White Sox beat the Minnesota Twins 4-2 on Monday night.

After falling out of sole possession of first place in the AL Central on Sunday night following a 1-6 road trip and being swept by the Tigers, the White Sox won the first of a 10-game homestand. They moved a game up on Detroit, which lost to Cleveland 3-2.

Many of the White Sox players watched the Tigers’ last out before going out to stretch while manager Robin Ventura practiced his putting in his office.

The White Sox have won eight straight at home and 22 of their last 27 at U.S. Cellular Field.

Jamey Carroll hit his first home run in three seasons for the Twins, who are 25 games below .500.
