Liriano Impressive in Win
Francisco Liriano spoiled Kevin Youkilis' first game with Chicago, throwing a season-high seven innings to lead Minnesota over the White Sox.
Liriano (2-7) allowed just three singles, two walks and a double. The left-hander struck out five and won for the first time this month. He held Chicago without a run until Alexei Ramirez's sacrifice fly in the seventh inning.
Jared Burton notched the save for the second straight game for the Twins, filling in for injured closer Matt Capps.
Youkilis, acquired from Boston on Sunday, singled in the eighth inning for his first hit as Chicago's new third baseman. It wasn't enough for Jake Peavy (6-4), who is 0-3 in five June starts.
Peavy struck out seven and walked one in six innings, but he gave up 10 hits.
