White Sox Vs. Twins Final Score: Alex Rios Smacks Pair Of HRs In 6-2 Chicago Victory

Powered by a pair of home runs from outfielder Alex Rios, the Chicago White Sox reinforced their AL Central lead on Wednesday afternoon with a 6-2 victory over Minnesota.

Rios, who belted a grand slam in the first inning and then a two-run shot in the sixth, boosted his RBI total up to 82 for the season with his strong day from the plate. And with Rios supplying the entirety of the offense, right-hander Jake Peavy was more than comfortable keeping a slew of Minnesota slap-hitters at bay over six innings of work.

Peavy yielded just one run on five hits to pick up his 10th victory of the season, lowering his ERA down to 3.22 in the process with the outing. Hoping to build on their lead in the division, Robin Ventura's White Sox will remain at home to host Kansas City Royals for a weekend series that kicks off Friday
