Indians Vs. Twins: Indians Lose 14-7 As Both Teams Showcase Offenses

On a Saturday evening in Chicago, the Chicago White Sox decided that it was time for a shellacking. And then they proceeded to give the Minnesota Twins one to the tune of a 14-7 White Sox win.

The Twins watched as Paul Konerko went 4-for-4 and Alex Rios and Dayan Viciedo each added three hits to lead a White Sox lineup that accumulated 17 hits that led to their 14 runs. Viciedo had five RBI and a homerun and Rios homered as well.

It wasn't like the Twins didn't put up a fight on offense. Jason Kipnis went 2-for-4 with two two-run home runs, four RBI and two runs scored to lead the Twins. Michael Brantley went 1-for-4 with three RBI to help Kipnis in accounting for all of the Twins' runs.

As the Twins scored seven runs on Jake Peavy, the White Sox were going to work on Twins' starter Derek Lowe who gave up eight runs on 10 hits in 2 1/3 innings, including a five-run third inning.
