Rosario leads Lynn, Twins over White Sox 8-4

CHICAGO — Eddie Rosario homered and drove in five runs, Lance Lynn earned his first AL win and the Minnesota Twins beat the Chicago White Sox 8-4 on Saturday.

The Twins posted back-to-back victory from the first time since April 12. Chicago has lost six of seven.

Rosario had four hits, including a two-run homer in the third inning and a two-run double in the fourth. Minnesota tagged Hector Santiago (0-1) for eight runs in 3 1/3 innings.

Lynn (1-3) took advantage of the support, allowing two runs in six innings. He struck out seven without a walk and left his sixth start for the Twins with a 7.28 ERA.

The 30-year-old Lynn compiled a 72-47 record in his first six big league seasons with the St. Louis Cardinals. He received little interest on the free-agent market before signing a one-year, $12 million deal with the Twins a month into spring training.

Tim Anderson hit solo home runs for the White Sox. His second career two-homer game gave him six this season.

Matt Magill allowed a run on two hits in two innings in relief of Lynn, and Phil Hughes recorded the final three outs.

Santiago allowed six hits and six walks before being replaced by Chris Volstad with one out in the fourth.
