The Twins continued their dominance against the White Sox with a 6-2 win on Thursday. They have now won 16 of their last 18 against Chicago including 8 in a row. If you go back even further they have won 29 of the last 36 over the Sox.

Joe Mauer shined in his first game at first base and was tested early and often. In the first inning Mauer caught a line drive and turned it into a double play and followed that up with a another putout as Dunn grounded out to first to end the inning. Pavano had a solid outing for the Twins going 7 innings allowing 2 runs on 6 hits with 2 walks and 4 Ks. The two runs came on a 2-run home run by Mark Teahen. The Twins offense was clicking as they scored 6 runs on 13 hits. Joe Mauer added to his great defense with 3 hits in 5 at bats with 2 RBI. Ben Revere also had 3 hits with 2 RBI and 2 runs. Nishioka backed up his three hit performance yesterday with 2 hits, 2 runs and 1 RBI. Nishi, Revere and Casilla all had one stolen base as well against A.J. Matt Capps pitched a perfect 9th inning in a non save opportunity. The Twins will try to extend their streak against the White Sox tomorrow. You can see the full Yahoo! box score here.
