Twins Vs. White Sox Final Score: 9 Runs, P.J. Walters Complete Game Leads Minnesota In Chicago

P.J. Walters gave up a run in the first and ninth innings, but zero in between en route to a complete game win on Tuesday night against the Chicago White Sox, 9-2.

Of course, Walters received plenty of run support in the win. Justin Morneau hit his sixth home run of the season, a three-run shot in the fourth inning that chased White Sox starter Gavin Floyd. Josh Willingham and Alexi Casilla knocked in another two runs apiece.

Walters was the real story, though, striking out eight in his first career complete game. He allowed just five hits and walked two batters on 110 pitches, helping him improve to 2-1 on the season with a 2.95 ERA.

The three-game set continues on Wednesday night at 8:10 p.m. ET.
