(Newser) – Jermaine Dye homered for the third straight game while Juan Uribe added a go-ahead two-run drive in the fifth to help the struggling Chicago White Sox beat the Minnesota Twins 6-2 last night. John Danks (3-3) made it through five innings, giving up six hits and two runs, and Chicago won for just the second time in nine games.

Twins starter Kevin Slowey (0-2), who came off the disabled list Wednesday (biceps strain) and made his first start since April 3, allowed one hit through the first four innings. Slowey went five innings, allowing five hits and three runs. Minnesota manager Ron Gardenhire returned after missing five games following the death of his brother, was ejected in the sixth inning.
