Mauer, Twins beat White Sox 6-5 for 4-game sweep

Posted:

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Joe Mauer had two hits and two RBIs, and the Minnesota Twins beat the White Sox 6-5 Sunday to complete their first four-game sweep against Chicago in 20 years.

Anthony Swarzak and Casey Fien combined for three shutout innings of relief and Jared Burton earned his first save since May 30, 2013, with a perfect ninth. Kurt Suzuki had three hits.

Gordon Beckham and Jose Abreu had two RBIs apiece for the White Sox, who have lost eight straight games against AL Central rivals.

After Chicago scored five times in the third for a 5-3 lead, Brian Dozier and Mauer had RBI singles and Josh Willingham added a sacrifice fly in the fourth to put the Twins ahead for good.

The Twins last swept Chicago in a four-game series June 9-12, 1994.
