Sox Sweep Twins for First Time in 7 Years

Peavy pitches eight shutout innings

Jake Peavy won for the first time in more than six weeks with eight shutout innings for Chicago, and the White Sox beat the Twins 7-0 Sunday to sweep a three-game series in Minnesota for the first time in more than seven years.

Brent Lillibridge, Paul Konerko, Alexei Ramirez and Alex Rios each hit home runs for the White Sox, who had lost 29 of 36 games to their nemeses until winning three straight at Target Field this weekend.

The backsliding Twins have lost seven of their last eight games overall.

Peavy (5-5) last picked up a victory by pitching four shutout innings in his first career relief appearance.
