White Sox trip up Twins

MINNEAPOLIS – Adam Dunn and Dayan Viciedo homered to back another strong start from Jake Peavy and lead the Chicago White Sox to a 4-2 victory over the Minnesota Twins on Tuesday night.

Peavy (5-1) gave up two runs and five hits with six strikeouts in seven innings and Tyler Flowers’ single in the eighth scored the go-ahead run for the White Sox. Addison Reed picked up his 12th save.

Kevin Correia (4-3) gave up four runs and nine hits with two strikeouts in seven innings and Joe Mauer extended his hitting streak to 13 games for the Twins. Justin Morneau added a single and a double to increase his hitting streak to 10 games.

Dunn, who entered the game hitting a league-worst .133, and Viciedo got the Sox off to a roaring start with nearly 1,000 feet of home runs in the second inning.

One night after watching Aaron Hicks rob a home run in center field, Dunn put a little extra on a pitch that soared an estimated 413 feet into the bullpen. Viciedo followed three pitches later with a blast that landed in the first row of the third deck in left field, some 424 feet from home plate for a 2-0 lead, but the fun was just beginning.
