De Aza Drives In 4 As White Sox Top Twins 8-6
CHICAGO (AP) -- Alejandro De Aza drove in a career-high four runs to lead the Chicago White Sox to an 8-6 win over the Minnesota Twins on Tuesday night.

De Aza hit a three-run homer in the fourth inning to erase an early deficit and help the White Sox win their fifth straight game. He also walked and scored two runs.

Paul Konerko doubled, scored twice and had an RBI during Chicago's decisive five-run rally in the fifth.

Will Ohman (1-3) got the win and Sergio Santos capped a strong performance by the Chicago bullpen with his 28th save. Starter Zach Stewart allowed six runs and seven hits in 4 2-3 innings.

Twins starter Anthony Swarzak (3-5) allowed eight runs, six earned over 4 1-3 innings.

Jason Kubel hit a three-run homer for Minnesota.
