Max Kepler and Eddie Rosario accounted for all of the Twins' runs. Rosario started the scoring with a three-run home run in the third inning. Kepler added an RBI double that frame and followed it up with another three-run homer in the seventh.

Dylan Covey was charged with the loss for the White Sox.
