Last Night’s Highlights
The White Sox tied season highs with 11 runs and 16 hits and Carlos Rodon earned his fourth straight victory as the Sox routed the Twins, 11-4, at Target Field.
Rodon won his sixth of the season and executed his sixth straight quality start, giving up three earned runs in seven innings of work. He struck out five.
Jose Abreu and Melky Cabrera each had three hits and three RBI, Adam Eaton collected four hits, four runs scored with a run batted in and Todd Frazier slammed homer No. 35, a two-run blast that gave him the Sox’ single-season record for third basemen.
Omar Narvaez and Carlos Sanchez each had a pair of hits and two runs scored with Sanchez adding an RBI. Everyone but Justin Morneau joined the hit parade, but Justin walked three times and scored a run.

As Frazier returned to the dugout after his homer, he jokingly got the cold shoulder from the man he passed, skipper Robin Ventura, to take over the franchise’s home run record for a third baseman.
