Twins Vs. White Sox Final Score: Chicago Completes Sweep With 8-2 Win

The Chicago White Sox completed a sweep of the Minnesota Twins on Wednesday afternoon with a 8-2 victory behind a powerful performance from Dayan Viciedo. With Jake Peavy also pitching well in the victory, the White Sox are now a half-game ahead of the Tigers in the standings entering tonight's games.

The Twins initially took a 1-0 lead over the White Sox after the first inning, but Chicago's offense came alive to score two runs apiece over four consecutive innings to ultimately take an 8-2 lead through five innings. The bullpen finished things off with three straight shutout innings, although the Twins loaded the bases in the top of the ninth inning.

Viciedo powered the White Sox offense on Wednesday, going 3-for-4 with a double, a homer and four RBI. Alex Rios also finished off a very solid series, going 1-for-3 with a homer, a walk, two runs scored and two RBI.
