Rookie Danny Santana had five hits and four RBI, and the Minnesota Twins scored nine runs in the eighth inning of a rain-delayed 16-3 victory over the White Sox on Sunday.
Santana had two hits and two RBI in the Twins’ big inning, when they sent 14 batters to the plate and had nine hits against three relievers. The five hits set a season high for the rookie center fielder, who was one off his best for RBI set June 7 against Houston.
Dayan Viciedo hit a two-run homer for the Sox, who were hurt by poor bullpen work. Relievers Javy Guerra (1-3), Taylor Thompson, Ronald Belisario, Eric Surkamp and Andre Rienzo allowed 15 runs and 18 hits over the last four innings.
