Upstarts in a blowout
Twin pound ball early, often
Scott Baker allowed seven runs to the White Sox, but by that time he already had a substantial lead, as the Twins routed the Sox by scoring early and often. Jason Kubel's grand slam in the fourth inning put the game out of reach as the Twins scored 20 runs.

Series at a glance:
A day to forget for Garland
The White Sox scored 14 runs, but by then the game was already out of hand, as Jon Garland allowed 11 earned runs over 3 1/3 innings. Paul Konerko went 3-for-3 with a home run and a double, but it was for naught in the first game of the doubleheader.
