MINNEAPOLIS — Trevor Plouffe hit his first career grand slam, and the Twins completed a four-game series sweep of the White Sox with a 13-3 victory on Sunday afternoon at Target Field. Sox left-hander John Danks gave up seven runs in the third inning, including the Plouffe homer, but only three were earned following two errors on Danks.

At the plate

Twins right-hander Mike Pelfrey hit three Sox batters in the fourth inning, including Geovany Soto and Micah Johnson with the bases loaded to give the Sox their first runs of the game.

On the mound

Danks pitched 2 1/3 innings before reliever Scott Carroll took his place. Carroll allowed four runs – one earned — on four hits over one inning.

In the field

The Sox committed four errors in the first four innings – two on Danks, one on second baseman Micah Johnson and one on catcher Geovany Soto, who flipped a ball over the head of pitcher Dan Jennings at the plate, allowing the Twins to score.
