CHICAGO (AP) - Chris Parmelee homered to cap a 10-run fifth inning and the Minnesota Twins routed the Chicago White Sox 18-9 on Tuesday night.
 
The Twins also batted around in a seven-run second, but first-place Chicago remained one game ahead of Detroit in the AL Central. The Tigers lost 3-2 to Cleveland.
 
Minnesota pecked away methodically with 17 hits _ only three went for extra bases.
 
Parmelee drove in four runs while Ryan Doumit had three hits and three RBIs. Doumit hit a solo homer in the seventh and scored three times.
 
Minnesota's Eduardo Escobar had two hits and three RBIs against his former team.
 
Outfielder Dewayne Wise pitched a scoreless ninth for the White Sox, who had a franchise-record 10 doubles _ five in a four-run eighth.
