Jorge Polanco, Kennys Vargas and Eddie Rosario each homered against White Sox rookie right-hander Lucas Giolito, called up Tuesday from Triple-A Charlotte for his Chicago debut.

The red-hot Minnesota Twins seek their 13th win in 17 games when they visit the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday for the middle contest of their five-game series.

The White Sox took a 2-1 lead in the first inning on Avisail Garcia's two-run single before Sanchez broke the game open in the fourth inning.

Lopez showcased that great arm of his in one good start against the Royals in his Sox debut but left his second start with a sore back and six runs allowed in 4 1/3 innings.

He was 0-1 with a 6.75 ERA in six appearances and four starts last season with the Nationals, who traded him to the White Sox as part of the Adam Eaton deal in early December.

Kyle Gibson (7-10) struck out a season-high eight batters over seven innings, allowing one run.

Twins relievers Trevor Hildenberger and Matt Belisle worked scoreless eighth and ninth innings. However, after Brian Dozier doubled with two outs to represent the tying run, Jake Petricka got Joe Mauer to fly out. The teams split a doubleheader on Monday, but it was enough for the Twins to move into sole possession of the American League's second wild-card spot.

He was 6-10 with a 4.48 ERA, 134 strikeouts and two shutouts over 24 starts with Triple-A Charlotte this season.
