Surging Twins Blank White Sox
CHICAGO (AP) -- Nick Blackburn pitched seven innings and Orlando Cabrera led the offense Monday night as the Minnesota Twins continued their late surge with a 7-0 victory over the Chicago White Sox.

The Twins, who have won five of six, moved within 2 1/2 games of first-place Detroit, which was idle, in the AL Central. The fading White Sox lost for the fifth time in six games and are seven back.

Blackburn (11-11) allowed eight singles with no walks and six strikeouts to earn his first road win since May 31st against Tampa Bay. He is 4-1 this season against Chicago.

Cabrera, who last season helped the White Sox win the AL Central title, had a triple, sacrifice fly, RBI single, reached on an error and scored three times.
