Jake Cave hit two home runs, and C.J. Cron homered, doubled and drove in three runs as the visiting Minnesota Twins jumped out to a 9-0 lead and then cruised to a 10-5 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Thursday afternoon.

Nelson Cruz had two hits and three RBIs, Jonathan Schoop had three hits and a run scored, and Jorge Polanco and Eddie Rosario each had two hits for Minnesota, which completed a three-game series sweep of the White Sox with its fifth straight victory.
Jose Abreu went 4-for-5 with two doubles and an RBI, and Eloy Jimenez and Yolmer Sanchez each went 2-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored for Chicago.
