Kevin Correia threw seven scoreless innings and home runs by Brian Dozier and Joe Mauer in the fifth pushed the Minnesota Twins to a 5-2 victory over the Chicago White Sox in the finale of a four-game series. Correia (8-8) gave up just five hits while fanning seven and walking one in his outing. It was the 32-year-old right-hander’s longest start since pitching seven innings against the White Sox on May 14th. Dozier hit a three-run home run while Mauer delivered a two-run shot for the Twins, who took three of the games in this series. White Sox starter Jose Quintana (6-4) gave up both home runs in the loss. Minnesota will host Cleveland tonight, coverage begins at 6:40pm on 860 AM KNUJ and SAM 107.3.
