CHICAGO (AP) Kevin Correia pitched seven shutout innings, Brian Dozier and Joe Mauer backed him with home runs and the Minnesota Twins beat the Chicago White Sox 5-2 Sunday.

The Twins took three of four games in the series and have won nine of 12 against the White Sox this season.

Adam Dunn and Conor Gillaspie hit solo home runs off Casey Fien in the White Sox ninth.

Dozier's three-run homer, his 11th of the season, gave the Twins a 3-0 lead in the fifth after Chris Colabello singled and Doug Bernier walked. After Jamey Carroll singled, Mauer hit his ninth homer.

Mauer is hitting .351 in 64 career games at U.S. Cellular Field.
