Recap: Chicago WSox vs. Minnesota

Chicago, IL (Sports Network) - Kevin Correia threw seven scoreless innings and home runs by Brian Dozier and Joe Mauer in the fifth pushed the Minnesota Twins to a 5-2 victory over the Chicago White Sox in the finale of a four-game series.

Correia (8-8) gave up just five hits while fanning seven and walking one in his outing. It was the 32-year-old right-hander's longest start since pitching seven innings against the White Sox on May 14.

"He really located the ball, he was spot on with his pitches, and that's why you see a big zero up there on the scoreboard," Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said.

Dozier hit a three-run home run while Mauer delivered a two-run shot for the Twins, who took three of the games in this series.

White Sox starter Jose Quintana (6-4) gave up both home runs in the loss.

"It happened quick. He pitched good except for that one inning. It wasn't anything elongated ... it just happened," said White Sox manager Robin Ventura.

Chicago was able to get a runner to second in each of the first three innings, but squandered all three scoring opportunities.

In the fifth, Chris Colabello singled and Doug Bernier was walked with one out before Dozier clubbed a 1-0 slider over the left field wall.

Mauer homered to right after Jamey Carroll knocked a single to right and the Twins had a 5-0 advantage.

The White Sox finally managed to score in the bottom of the ninth. Adam Dunn connected on a 1-1 pitch from Casey Fien to get them on the board.

After Paul Konerko and Avisail Garcia struck out, Gillaspie knocked a solo shot over the right field wall. However, Fien finished the game by striking out pinch-hitter Jordan Danks.

Game Notes

The Twins have won six of their last seven games against the White Sox and are 9-3 in the season series ... Mauer recorded his first home run since June 22 ... Dozier has recorded an extra-base hit in six straight games ... The Twins were 1-for-10 with runners in scoring position ... Quintana entered the game 2-1 with a 1.37 ERA in his previous four home starts ... Dunn needs one home run to tie Andruw Jones and Juan Gonzalez for 41st all-time.
