Ramirez hitting on all cylinders at the plate
MINNEAPOLIS -- Chicago's recent run-scoring woes are no secret these days. The White Sox scored just 13 runs over the last five games before Wednesday, but Alexei Ramirez can't be blamed for the lack of production.

Ramirez entered Wednesday's series finale with the Twins on a nearly month-long tear. The right-handed shortstop was hitting .382 over his last 16 games (21-for-55).

He was especially impressive in the first two games of the series with Minnesota. Ramirez went a combined 4-for-6 in the first two games, including a triple in Tuesday's 3-2 win.

"It's the best he's swung it, for me, probably since the beginning of the year," manager Robin Ventura said. "His timing and the way the ball's coming off the bat, it's good to see."
