Rookie Danny Santana had five hits and four RBIs, and the Minnesota Twins scored nine runs in the eighth inning of a rain-delayed 16-3 victory over the White Sox on Sunday at U.S. Cellular Field.

Santana had two hits and two RBIs in the Twins' big inning, when they sent 14 batters to the plate and had nine hits against three relievers. The five hits set a season high for the rookie center fielder, who was one off his best for RBIs set June 7 against Houston.

Dayan Viciedo hit a two-run homer for the Sox, who were hurt by poor bullpen work. Relievers Javy Guerra (1-3), Taylor Thompson, Ronald Belisario, Eric Surkamp and Andre Rienzo allowed a total of 15 runs and 18 hits over the final four innings.

Kyle Gibson (10-8) was the beneficiary of Minnesota's big day at the plate. The 6-foot-6 right-hander allowed three runs and six hits in seven innings while improving to 3-1 with a 3.08 ERA in his last four starts.

Chicago starter Jose Quintana struggled through three errors and two rain delays (for a total of 45 minutes) in the first two innings. He managed to get through five innings on 116 pitches, leaving with a 3-1 lead thanks to a three-run fourth for the White Sox.

Alexei Ramirez hit an RBI double and scored on Viciedo's 13th homer.

Minnesota responded three runs in the sixth. Eduardo Nunez had a run-scoring single before Santana's two-run double gave Minnesota a 4-3 lead.
