Twin Cities Cesar Tovar and Harmon Killebrew belted homeruns off White Sox starter Johnny Buzhardt in the 1st inning giving the Twins a quick 3 - 0 lead, but Chicago bounced back on a 2nd inning Pete Ward homerun (his 5th) and a clutch 3-run shot by Ron Hansen (his 2nd) in the 5th inning to give the Chisox a 5 - 4 lead which ended as the final score.
John Buzhardt (2-2) went 6 1/3 innings and picked up the win. Hoyt Wilhelm knuckled the final 2 2/3 innings of hitless ball capturing his 1st save of the season. J. C. Martin had an rbi while Tommy McCraw and Ken Berry each contributed a stolen base. Chicago's win ended a 3 game losing streak and are currently 2 - 3 on a 12 game road trip. The 1st place White Sox are now 21-11.
