Arcia HR in 10th Lifts Twins Past White Sox 3-2
CHICAGO (AP)--Oswaldo Arcia homered leading off the 10th inning, and the Minnesota Twins beat the Chicago White Sox 3-2 to complete the day-night doubleheader sweep on Friday.

Josh Willingham and Chris Hermann also went deep. Brian Duensing (6-1) picked up the win in both games, and the Twins prevailed in the nightcap after rallying to take the opener 7-5.

The big news came before the first game, with the White Sox trading Alex Rios to Texas.

Then, Justin Morneau hit a grand slam and solo homer to lift the Twins in the early game.

In the second game, Minnesota was trailing 2-1 heading into the eighth when Willingham greeted reliever Matt Lindstrom with a leadoff homer.

Arcia, who also homered in the first game, put the Twins ahead when he drove a 1-0 pitch from Dylan Axelrod (4-9) well beyond the center-field wall leading off the 10th.
