David DeJesus drove in three runs to back eight scoreless innings from Ryan Dempster as the Cubs cruised to an 8-2 win over the Twins. Dempster struck out six and allowed just four hits and a walk to improve to 2-and-3 on the season. Alfonso Soriano, Jeff Baker, Joe Mather and Darwin Barney all plated a run for Chicago, which snapped a four-game slide to salvage the finale of a three-game set at Target Field. Ryan Doumit and Jamey Carroll each knocked in a run for Minnesota. Francisco Liriano was saddled with the loss.
