Darin Erstad singled and scored in the first innning, but that, and an RBI walk, was the extent of the White Sox offense. John Danks struggled for the first time in his rookie season, serving up two homers and four walks in 3 1/3 innings in his third start against the Twins.
Justin Morneau went 3-for-4 with a homer, two doubles and four RBIs to lead a relentless 16-hit Twins attack. Luis Castillo and Michael Cuddyer each contributed three hits as eight starters recorded at least one hit. Starter Boof Bonser improved to 4-1.
