MINNEAPOLIS -- Miguel Sano hit his 15th home run of the season, a solo shot in the second inning, and Trevor Plouffe doubled with the bases loaded in the seventh to provide starter Tommy Milone with all the run support he needed in the Twins' 3-0 victory over the White Sox on Wednesday.
With the Rangers' win over San Diego, the Twins remain a game back of Texas for the second Wild Card spot in the American League. Minnesota has now won 10 of 12 and improved to 11-4 against the White Sox this season.
