White Sox Snap Twins Streak Monday
The Chicago White Sox beat the Minnesota Twins 6-4 Monday night at Target Field in the first game of a three-game series. The loss snaps the Twins' four-game winning streak and drops their record to 76-49, two games ahead of idle Cleveland.

The Twins pounded out 15 hits in the loss while stranding ten runners on base.
Polanco finished 2-5 with a home run and two runs batted in, while Cruz returned from the injured list to finish 2-5 with a run batted in.
The Twins will host the White Sox again Tuesday night at Target Field. First pitch is set for 7:10 p.m. on AM 1240, WJON.
