They ended up hitting 11 of them, accounting for all 19 runs in their weekend series against the Chicago White Sox. Kevin Correia pitched seven shutout innings, Brian Dozier and Joe Mauer backed him with home runs and the Twins beat the White Sox 5-2 Sunday. "It sure seems we missed a lot of opportunities, but we did put the ball in the seats," Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said. "As we said coming into this series, in this ballpark, the ball flies. If you get a hold of it pretty decent, its going to go out." The Twins took three of four games in the series and have won nine of 12 against the White Sox this season. Minnesota has scored 23 of its 28 runs during its current road trip via home run, but the Twins are 7 for 62 with runners in scoring position during that stretch. "If you look at our runners in scoring position in this series, I dont think Major League Baseball thought you could do that either," Gardenhire said. "But well take the home runs if thats the way we have to score runs right now, as long as were winning ballgames." Adam Dunn and Conor Gillaspie hit solo home runs off Casey Fien in the ninth. Doziers three-run homer, his 11th of the season, gave the Twins a 3-0 lead in the fifth after Chris Colabello singled and Doug Bernier walked. After Jamey Carroll singled, Mauer hit his ninth homer. Mauer is hitting .351 in 64 career games at U.S. Cellular Field. Correia (8-8) struck out seven, tying a season high. He allowed five hits and one walk in his second scoreless outing of the season. "Early in the year, I had a lot mmore smoother innings where I was getting deeper in the game," Correia said.dddddddddddd. "Im trying to get back to firing a lot of strikes and getting quicker outs." Jose Quintana (6-4) gave up five runs in five innings. Thats the most runs hes permitted since giving up six on April 5 against Seattle. Quintana is 0-2 with a 9.15 ERA in four career starts against the Twins. The White Sox have scored three runs or fewer in 17 of his 24 starts. "Its kind of the same old story with him," Dunn said. "He keeps us in every single ballgame and one inning got him." Dunn hit his 27th homer and Gillaspie had his 10th. Notes: The Twins traded INF Carroll to the Kansas City Royals for a player to be named later or cash on Sunday. Earlier in the day, the Royals put 2B Miguel Tejada on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right calf. "If I can go there and contribute in a positive way, I know the team is playing extremely well right now and they have a bunch of good young guys and some great pitching," Carroll said. ... The Twins started Carroll at third base, giving Trevor Plouffe a day off, and started Doug Bernier at shortstop, resting Pedro Florimon. Plouffe is batting .233, and Florimon is hitting .223. "Plouffe is not swinging good. Flori didnt swing good, and Im using everybody anyway," Gardenhire said. ... Twins C Ryan Doumit is eligible to come off the seven-day disabled list this week. He went on the DL on Thursday for concussion-like symptoms. "Hell get re-examined by our doctors when we get home to determine if hes ready to resume baseball activities," Twins assistant GM Rob Antony said.
