By

MINNEAPOLIS -- Rookie Aaron Hicks hit two home runs and made a leaping catch in center field to take a home run away from Adam Dunn in the Minnesota Twins' 10-3 win over the White Sox on Monday night.

Justin Morneau extended his hitting streak to nine games with three hits and four RBIs, including a bases-clearing double that capped the scoring in the eighth.

Twins starter Pedro Hernandez (2-0) allowed three runs on six hits in 5 1-3 innings. The left-hander retired 14 of the next 15 batters he faced after giving up two runs in the first inning.

Alex Rios had two RBIs for the White Sox, who are last in the American League in batting average and runs scored.

Hector Santiago (1-2) allowed six runs -- three earned -- on eight hits in 5 2-3 innings.
