MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (AP) Justin Morneau homered for the first time in almost two months, a two-run shot that helped the Minnesota Twins to a 7-4 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Wednesday night.

 

Morneau's third homer of the season followed an RBI single by Josh Willingham in the sixth off Deunte Heath after White Sox ace Chris Sale's night ended after five shaky innings. Morneau last went deep on April 28. The 2006 AL MVP has three seasons of 30-plus homers.

 

Brian Dozier reached base four times for the Twins, including a three-run homer in the second against Sale (5-6).

 

Glen Perkins pitched a perfect ninth for the second game in a row, recording his 18th save in 20 tries, after Kevin Correia (6-4) pitched into the seventh.
