Max Kepler homered for a second straight game, Jorge Polanco also went deep, and the Minnesota Twins beat the Chicago White Sox 7-2 on Wednesday night.

 

The Twins beat the AL Central leaders for just the fourth time in 16 games. They bounced back after Chicago rallied late to win Tuesday's game and came out on top after losing five of six.

 

Michael Pineda (4-5) went five innings, allowing one run and four hits, in his first win since May 26. He was 0-3 in his previous four starts.

 

Dillon Cease gave up three runs and seven hits in five innings. The 25-year-old right-hander is 0-3 in his last four starts.

 

Adam Engel had an RBI single in the third. Andrew Vaughn doubled in a run in the eighth. But the White Sox lost after winning nine of 11.

 

The White Sox open a three-game series at NL Central-leading Milwaukee on Friday night, with RHP Lucas Giolito (8-6, 3.90 ERA) pitching for Chicago against Brewers RHP Freddy Peralta (7-3, 2.39 ERA).
