MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (AP) Adam Dunn homered twice, doubled and drove in five runs, powering the Chicago White Sox past the Minnesota Twins 9-4 on Wednesday.

Dunn hit a pair of two-run shots for his 35th career multihomer game. He's hit three home runs in the last two games and has nine this year. Dayan Viciedo also went deep for the second straight day, helping Dylan Axelrod (1-3) pick up his first victory this season.

Mike Pelfrey (3-4) was hit hard yet again, failing to record an out in the fifth inning. Dunn was the last batter he faced, delivering an RBI double that put the White Sox ahead 4-2. The 33-year-old slugger hit both of his homers with two outs, in the third against Pelfrey and the eighth off Josh Roenicke.
