Brian Dozier’s two-run homer for Minnesota was one of a career-high four long balls hit off Chicago starter John Danks, and the Twins finished their first three-game sweep of the season and their first over White Sox in three years with an 8-4 victory on Thursday.
Dayan Viciedo’s bases-loaded triple in a four-run sixth inning helped the White Sox snap a four-game losing streak. They also avoided being swept in a four-game series for the first time since 2008.
Adam Dunn made it seem as if he had no trouble seeing through the dense fog.

John Danks didn’t know what to do when a crucial at-bat against Raul Ibanez went on and on. The rest of the Chicago White Sox don’t know how to stop a losing streak that just won’t end.

Jake Peavy struck out 11 in seven innings, Paul Konerko homered and the Chicago White Sox broke a five-game losing streak, beating the Cleveland Indians 3-1 Sunday.
The loss was Chicago’s fifth straight, all on the road. The White Sox are 0-5 away from home for the first time since 1972.
