Aaron Hicks homered twice and Justin Morneau knocked in four runs as the Twins crushed the White Sox, 10-3, in the opener of a three-game series at Target Field. Trevor Plouffe drove in a pair of runs for the Twins, who have won five of their last seven. Pedro Hernandez gave up three runs in five-and-a-third innings as he improved to 2-and-0. Alex Rios plated two runs and Alejandro had three hits and scored twice for the White Sox, who have lost three-of-four. Hector Santiago struck out six in five-and-two-thirds frames, but allowed six runs, three earned, on eight hits as he fell to 1-and-2.

Game #2 of the series is tonight with the Pre-Game Show at 6:35 on Newstalk 1060.
