MINNEAPOLIS -- The Minnesota bullpen helped bail out Phil Hughes after the Twins ace had uncharacteristic outing Sunday. James Harrison Jersey . Joe Mauer had two hits and two RBIs, and the Twins beat the White Sox 6-5 to complete their first four-game sweep against Chicago in 20 years. Anthony Swarzak and Casey Fien combined for three shutout innings of relief and Jared Burton earned his first save since May 30, 2013, with a perfect ninth. "Everybody was great except for me today," said Phil Hughes, who lasted just five innings but got the win. He allowed eight hits and tied a season high by giving up five earned runs. Hughes (8-3), who went at least six innings in his 11 previous outings, allowed his first walk in 107 batters during the White Soxs five-run third inning. "I just struggled with command, my off-speed stuff wasnt great," Hughes said. "Our bullpen stepped up big today, offence fought back a couple times. Thats huge." Gordon Beckham and Jose Abreu had two RBIs apiece for the White Sox, who have lost eight straight games against AL Central rivals. "Anytime you sit there and pity yourself, youre going to get buried. Nobody cares. You have to be able to pick yourself up off the mat and compete and then it works out," said manager Robin Ventura. After Chicago scored five times in the third for a 5-3 lead, Brian Dozier and Mauer had RBI singles and Josh Willingham added a sacrifice fly in the fourth to put the Twins ahead for good. The Twins last swept Chicago in a four-game series June 9-12, 1994. "Anytime you sweep anybody is a real good feeling, but anytime you get a four-game it makes it that much more gratifying for our ballclub," said bench coach Terry Steinbach, who took over when manager Ron Gardenhire was ejected in the third inning after arguing with home plate umpire D.J. Reyburn. On an overcast, humid afternoon, Hughes wasnt the only starter who struggled. In his past five starts for Chicago, John Danks (6-6) was 3-1 with a 1.51 ERA, allowing just 24 hits. However, none of those were against Minnesota, a team he has struggled against. Danks allowed six earned runs on a season high-tying 10 hits. In his last eight starts versus the Twins since Aug, 11, 2010, he is 0-6 with a 6.18 ERA. "Its just one of those days, I guess. Certainly wasnt fun. Shot myself in the foot. Didnt do myself any favours. Cost us the game," he said. "You score five runs, that should be plenty to win a ballgame. To go out and give it right back in a five-inning span is kind of a tough pill to swallow." The left-hander walked the first two batters he faced, but the Twins managed just one run. Minnesota, however, scored twice in the second for a 3-0 lead. Kurt Suzuki led off with a double, but was thrown out at home trying to score on a single by Eduardo Escobar. Escobar scored one batter later on Sam Fulds double off the right field wall. Mauer added an RBI single later in the inning. Mauer has six RBI in his last four games, after entering the series with just 16. "When Joe Mauer heats up, you watch out around the league," Dozier said. Hughes gave up the lead in the third. A pair of singles and a walk loaded the bases with no outs. After Adam Eaton struck out on a full-count pitch, Beckham lined the first pitch he saw for a two-run double to the wall in left-centre and Abreu followed with a two-run single up the middle for a 4-3 lead. A bloop single by Conor Gillaspie plated the innings final run. NOTES: Suzuki had three hits. ... Willingham returned to the Minnesota lineup after being given Saturday off. He went 0 for 4 and is 2 for 22 since last Monday. ... Eaton singled in the first inning and has reached base safely in 17 straight games ... Chicagos Chris Sale (6-1, 2.20) is scheduled to start Monday at Baltimore against the Orioles Wei-Yin Chen (7-2, 3.98). ... Kyle Gibson (6-5, 3.25) is to pitch for Minnesota Tuesday in the opener of a three-game series in Los Angeles against C.J. Wilson (7-6, 3.34) of the Angels. John Stallworth Jersey .Y. - Urijah Faber walked out on a Madison Square Garden stage in a Wes Welker jersey, the UFCs fun nod to that other "super" show this weekend. Bud Dupree Jersey . So much so that even a simple foul pop up to the first baseman turned into a run. Houstons four-run rally in the ninth inning to beat the Seattle Mariners 6-4 on Monday night was capped by a bizarre play that started as Crowe fouled out to first baseman Justin Smoak with runners on second and third. http://www.steelerspronfl.com/Youth-Greg-Lloyd-Elite-Jersey/ . The Raptors second-year forward has been one of the primary beneficiaries of the early-season trade, breaking out and becoming a vital part of his teams success on both ends of the floor. Around the league, teams are starting to take notice and feature Ross more predominately in their pre-game scouting reports but its not just the opposition that hes impressing.Madison, WI (SportsNetwork.com) - The fourth-ranked Wisconsin Badgers put their seven-game win streak on the line when they entertain the Purdue Boilermakers at the Kohl Center on Wednesday evening. Both teams come in after winning their first two Big Ten Conference bouts, with Purdue beating Minnesota (72-68) and Michigan (64-51), and Wisconsin taking down Penn State (89-72) and Northwestern (81-58). The Boilermakers are 10-5 overall, but they have played the majority of their games at home -- this being only their second true road game of the season. The teams modest two-game win streak comes on the heels of a three-game slide, which included an 89-84 setback to visiting Gardner-Webb. The Badgers have only lost once in 15 opportunities, and the team has been ranked in the top-five all season long. Bo Ryan owns 158 career Big Ten wins, and needs just one more to set the UW record. The Badgers are 7-1 at home this season, the lone defeat coming against Duke on Dec. 3. Purdue owns a 104-69 lead in the all-time series with Wisconsin, but the Badgers have won three of the last four meetings, including a season sweep in 2013-14. Purdue played extremely well on defense in its recent win over Michigan, holding the Wolverines to 31.9 percent field goal efficiency, while doubling up the Maize and Blue on the boards, 44-22. Vince Edwards scored 16 points, A.J. Hammons had a double-double consisting of 15 points and 12 rebounds, and Jon Octeus finished with 13 points and eight boards for the Boilermakers, who made good on 45.7 percent of their total shots, despite missing 10 of their 13 3-ppoint tries. Daimion Stafford Jersey. Michigan shot just 4-of-22 from the floor in the second half, scoring a mere 18 points. Purdue is putting up 75 ppg behind typical shooting outputs of .462 overall and .340 from beyond the arc, while the teams defensive effort yields just 64.5 ppg, with foes shooting nearly as well from distance (.386) as they are the field overall (.407). Balance has been the key to the Boilermakers success on offense, as four players average between 10.3 and 11.0 ppg, with Kendall Stephens leading the way. As has been the case all season long, Wisconsin performed well at both ends of the court in its recent win over Northwestern, knocking down 52.6 percent of its field goal attempts, which included a 12-of-25 showing from 3-point range, while the Wildcats were successful on only 4-of-14 perimeter launches and 39.3 percent overall. Frank Kaminsky continued his assault on opposing teams, logging a double-double with 16 points and 10 rebounds, while Sam Dekker also tallied 16 points, Duje Dukan 14 off the bench, and Nigel Hayes 10 points for a Wisconsin squad that committed only seven turnovers. Kaminsky is averaging 16.6 points and 8.5 rebounds per game to lead the team in both categories, doing so while shooting 52.8 percent from the field. Dekker nets 12.7 ppg and Hayes 12.4 ppg to go with 7.0 rpg to round out the double-digit scorers for a squad that generates 75.1 ppg while permitting just 54.1 ppg. Wisconsin ranks second in the Big Ten in rebounding margin (+7.6) and has an assist-to-turnover ratio of 1.59, turning the ball over just 8.5 times per tilt.
