    MINNEAPOLIS -- Justin Morneau watched the ball sail off one of his big swings toward right field, and finally the flight ended in the seats. Buzz Lightyear Vans Uk . After 168 at-bats without a home run, Minnesotas most powerful hitter for the past decade went deep again. Morneaus two-run shot and Brian Doziers three-run homer helped the Twins beat the Chicago White Sox 7-4 on Wednesday. "Theyll come in bunches. Youll see him at 20-plus before too long," Dozier said. Morneaus third homer of the season followed an RBI single by Josh Willingham in the sixth off Deunte Heath after Chris Sales night ended after five shaky innings. Morneau last went deep on April 28. The 2006 AL MVP has three seasons of 30-plus homers, but he hasnt done that since 2009. "I was sure hoping it was going to be gone, thats for sure," Morneau said. "Its been a while. It was good feeling. It was a good game for us. Hopefully that gets the monkey off my back, and we can get rolling." His teammates teased him in the dugout after he rounded the bases, pretending to ignore him, a silent-treatment trick instigated by manager Ron Gardenhire, according to Dozier. So Morneau gave out a bunch of air high-fives, a light moment on a night when several Twins enjoyed fine performances. "You can stand there and look like an idiot or high-five the air like an idiot. I chose to high-five the air like an idiot. It was fun," Morneau said. Glen Perkins pitched a perfect ninth for the second game in a row, recording his 18th save in 20 tries, after Kevin Correia (6-4) pitched into the seventh. Dozier reached base four times, including a three-run homer in the second against Sale (5-6). The White Sox have dropped six of seven to fall to 29-40. Theyre 11 games under .500 for the first time since an 11-22 record on May 6, 2011. "We havent quit. Its still a long way to go, and we can get hot any time," right fielder Alex Rios said. "Any moment, we can turn things around. Were going to keep grinding until theres nothing left." If Sale is struggling, thats almost a sure sign the White Sox are in trouble too. The lanky left-hander failed to reach the sixth inning for the first time in his last 10 starts, giving up four runs and eight hits. He also walked two, hit two batters and threw a wild pitch. Four of Sales five strikeouts were notched with his first four outs, but the second inning was a rough one. Oswaldo Arcia hit a sharp comebacker that Sale got a glove on to protect his body, but in doing so he jerked his midsection backward and flipped over from the momentum. The ball grazed his arm and his chin. Arcia had a one-out single, and Sale stayed in the game after he was checked out. Then Clete Thomas walked, and Doziers two-out drive -- his fifth homer this season -- put the Twins in front 3-1. Right before that, as Sale covered first base to barely get Pedro Florimon on a 3-1 groundout, the pitcher appeared to twist his left knee after trying to slow down and pivot toward the diamond as the runners moved to second and third. That prompted a second manager-trainer visit to Sale. He didnt show any discomfort after that, but he never found his form. Sale said neither of those scary plays affected his pitching. "Getting behind guys, thats what happens. They make you pay for it," Sale said. Trevor Plouffes RBI single in the third inning extended the lead, and the Twins left eight men on base over Sales five innings. Sale is 0-4 in four starts this month, but in 26 1-3 innings he has allowed only nine earned runs. Alejandro De Azas fourth leadoff home run this season was not nearly enough for the White Sox, who crept closer against the Twins bullpen but ran out of outs. Correia gave up five hits and two runs in 6 2-3 innings without a walk. He struck out six, after facing his third straight standout lefty. He had a no-decision against Washingtons Gio Gonzalez and Philadelphias Cliff Lee in his last two turns. "Im used to it. Its fun, going up against a very good pitcher like that. You dont have any room for error," Correia said. NOTES: Morneau tied Kirby Puckett for fifth place on Minnesotas home run list with the 207th of his career. ... Twins first-round draft pick Kohl Stewart shagged fly balls during batting practice after signing his contract and will leave Thursday for Fort Myers, Fla., to start pitching in the Gulf Coast League. Stewart, also a star quarterback at St. Pius X High School in Houston, turned down an offer to play baseball and football for Texas A&M. When Stewart stepped on the plane for Minnesota this week, he noticed a familiar face sitting in front of him: Adrian Peterson. After they landed, Stewart used Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin as an introductory icebreaker. Sumlin was an assistant at Oklahoma when Peterson played there. "Its kind of intimidating to introduce myself to Adrian Peterson, but it kind of worked out well," Stewart said.

LOUIS -- Cardinals cleanup hitter Allen Craig says hes recovered from a foot injury and ready to be put on St. ANAHEIM, Calif. -- How good is Mike Trout?Even when a pitcher makes a good pitch, the Los Angeles Angels center fielder is capable of doing damage. That is what the Houston Astros and Collin McHugh found out Monday in the series opener between the two teams.McHugh threw a 75 mph curveball that was about six inches off the ground when Trout golfed it over the fence in left-center field for a home run.(Catcher Jason) Castro said it was going to bounce, Astros manager A.J. Hinch said.Trout is as hot as anybody these days going into Wednesdays series finale against Houston. He is 4-for-7 with two doubles, a home run, a walk and two runs in the first two games of the series, both won by the Astros. He is hitting .560 (14-for-25) with three homers, two doubles, five RBI and eight runs in his past six games overall.Hes probably the best player on the planet, Hinch said. He always factors in, one way or another. It feels like its always going to come down to him. ... Hes one of the elite players in the world, so it doesnt surprise me when he does that stuff.Trout has hit well in his career against left-hander Dallas Keuchel, the Astros starter on Wednesday, batting .324 (11-for-34) with two homers.Hes got a great idea of the strike zone, first of all, Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. There are pitches that look like they are either ankle high, and some are even above the waist that hes getting to now this year. Hes just a special player.Despite Trouts presence, the Angels (32-46) are mired in last place in the American League Westt, 19 games behind the first-place Texas Rangers (51-27). Nike Air Max 95 Sale Uk. The Astros (41-37) are 10 games back, but they are in a virtual three-way tie for the second AL wild-card position.Weve got to be more than Mike, and we feel we are more than Mike, Scioscia said. But the most important thing, and it seems like weve talked about this almost on a nightly basis, is getting our rotation in order and getting our bullpen set up where we get some roles and hold some leads. When that happens, I think well put up wins.Jered Weaver (6-6, 5.24 ERA) will start for the Angels on Wednesday. The one-time ace of the staff leads the team in wins (six) and innings pitched (89 1/3), but he also has given up 19 home runs, tied for second most in the league.He will face an Astros lineup that has its own mini-Mike Trout in Jose Altuve, who will take a 10-game hitting streak into the game. Altuve has reached base by hit, walk or hit-by-pitch in 31 consecutive games, during which time he is batting .408 (49-for-120).Altuve also has hit Weaver well over this career, batting .333 (10-for-30) against him.Keuchel (4-9, 5.35 ERA) won his last start, allowing four runs in 6 1/3 innings Friday at Kansas City, after going 1-8 with a 6.20 ERA in a 12-start span.With victories in the first two games of the series, the Astros have beaten the Angels seven times in a row, losing only the teams first meeting of the season on May 27.
