Twins, feeling good at plate, chase sweep of White Sox

Four of the five home runs the Minnesota Twins hit during their 8-2 win against the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday sailed to the opposite field, including two off the bat of Alex Kirilloff.

The Twins have focused on using the whole field while batting lately, an approach that has them eyeing a three-game sweep of the host White Sox entering Wednesday's matinee.

"It just varies from guy to guy, and I think that just comes along sometimes, just good plate discipline and taking good at-bats as a team," Kirilloff said. "Just want to keep things simple and keep going."
