TWINS 7, WHITE SOX 0
Jake Odorizzi permitted one hit in 5 1/3 scoreless innings, and Eddie Rosario and Max Kepler each hit a three-run homer as Minnesota completed a sweep of Chicago.
Odorizzi (7-2) won his seventh straight decision and finished without allowing a run for the fifth time in his past six starts. He combined with four relievers for Minnesota’s sixth shutout of the season.
The Twins have won 11 of their past 12 games and swept a series for the seventh time this year. They swept eight series all of last season.
Rosario hit his 16th home run, second in the American League to Houston’s George Springer, to cap a four-run third against starter Dylan Covey. Kepler’s 12th home run came in the seventh, traveling an estimated 429 feet off the new wall of juniper bushes in center field.
Minnesota has a major league-best 104 home runs this season and has the top home run differential at plus-43.
Covey (0-4) allowed four runs in six innings.
