The season series between the White Sox and Twins is over, a series that Chicago dominated. The White Sox shrugged off a first-inning home run by Joe Mauer on Sunday to blow by the Twins 9-2 and win 14 of the 18 games between the teams this season. Chicago outscored the Twins 113-77 in the process. As some regulars missed time over the weekend because of injuries, the Twins mustered just five runs on 12 hits in this series. Mauer (back spasms) and Ryan Doumit (oblique) returned to the lineup Sunday, and Mauer homered and doubled in his first two at-bats. It's the third time in Mauer's career that he's reached double digits in homers.
