Twins Vs. White Sox Final Score: Minnesota Blasts Chicago In 18-9 Victory

It can sometimes take the Minnesota Twins a week or longer to score 18 runs, but they hit that total in just one game on Tuesday night against the Chicago White Sox. The Twins put up seven runs in the second inning and 10 runs in the fifth inning before adding one run in the top of the seventh on their way to coasting to a victory.

Minnesota hung those first seven runs on Chicago starter Jose Quintana, who was knocked out after 1.1 innings. In that second inning, the Twins managed to plate seven despite no extra base hits -- a two-run single from ex-White Sox infielder Eduardo Escobar qualified as the inning's big blast.

That wasn't quite the case in the fifth inning, where Trevor Plouffe knocked a triple and Chris Parmelee crushed a three-run homer. In the seventh inning, Ryan Doumit smacked a solo homer to centerfield.

The two teams will finish their series on Wednesday at 1:10 p.m. CT.
