White Sox first baseman Paul Konerko celebrates with teammates in the dugout after scoring on a Gordon Beckham single during the first inning of a baseball game against the Minnesota Twins in Chicago, Monday, Sept. 16, 2013.
Erik Johnson pitched six scoreless innings to earn his first major league victory, and the White Sox scored seven runs in the first and coasted to a 12-1 win over the Minnesota Twins on Monday night at U.S. Cellular Field.
The White Sox, who had lost six straight and 15 of 17, broke out of their offensive funk against Liam Hendriks and the Twins. Chicago scored a season high in runs and posted its biggest margin of victory this year.
After not having led since beating the Tigers 5-1 a week earlier, the White Sox had six hits in the first. Alejandro De Aza and Alexei Ramirez both reached base twice and scored in the inning.
Ramirez went 4 for 4 with his fifth home run and three runs batted in and was a triple short of the cycle. Adam Dunn, Dayan Viciedo and Jordan Danks also homered.
