MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Brian Dozier's two-run homer for Minnesota was 1 of a career-high four long balls hit off Chicago starter John Danks, and the Twins finished their first 3-game sweep of the season and their first over White Sox in three years with an 8-4 victory on Thursday.

Oswaldo Arcia went deep in the second inning ahead of Dozier. Clete Thomas and Eduardo Escobar hit back-to-back shots in the fourth, sending the White Sox to their seventh defeat in the last eight games. They fell to a league-worst 13-27 on the road and 5-13 overall in June.

Danks (1-4) lasted only five innings, giving up 12 hits and six runs. Paul Konerko and Adam Dunn hit consecutive home runs against Scott Diamond (5-6) in the sixth inning, but that wasn't nearly enough.
