Konerko, Buehrle Lead White Sox Past Twins
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Paul Konerko had five hits and four RBIs and Mark Buehrle pitched seven shutout innings to help the Chicago White Sox slow surging Minnesota with an 11-0 victory on Thursday night.

Buehrle (12-9) allowed five hits and struck out four. Konerko hit his 31st home run and had a double and three singles among Chicago's 21 hits to help the Sox avoid a sweep and shave the Twins' lead to four games in the AL Central.

Carl Pavano (15-8) set a career high and tied a club record with 15 hits allowed. He gave up seven runs in six innings. The Twins lost at sold-out Target Field for the first time in 10 games and missed a chance to take a six-game lead in the division.
