Kevin Correia pitched seven shutout innings, Brian Dozier and Joe Mauer backed him with home runs and the Minnesota Twins beat the Chicago White Sox 5-2 Sunday.

The Twins took 3 of 4 games in the series and have won 9 of 12 against the White Sox this season.

Adam Dunn and Conor Gillaspie hit solo home runs off Casey Fien in the White Sox ninth.

Mauer is hitting .351 in 64 career games at U.S. Cellular Field.
