The Minnesota Twins scored four runs in the second inning and five runs in the fourth inning to build a 9-1 lead over the Chicago White Sox after five innings on Tuesday night at U.S. Cellular Field. Sox starter Gavin Floyd got killed, surrendering eight hits, three walks and nine runs in 3.2 innings before being pulled for Zach Stewart.

The Sox actually held a lead this game, albeit brief. Gordon Beckham homered to left in the first inning to the South Siders a 1-0 lead.

Then came the second and the offensive explosion for Minnesota. Second baseman Alexi Casilla clubbed a two RBI double, while Jamie Carroll and Denard Span each added drove-in runs on singles. In the fourth, Justin Morneau hit a three-run homer off Floyd to extend Minnesota's lead to 9-1.
