The Twins' offensive struggles continued on Sunday as they lost 5-2 to the White Sox, losing three games of the four-game series.
Chicago used a big day from shortstop Alexei Ramirez, who was 3-for-4 with a homer and 3 RBI, to beat the Twins for the third straight game. Despite allowing plenty of runners on base, White Sox lefthander Hector Santiago was able to pitch six solid innings to improve to 4-7.
The Twins entered the game 27th in the league with runners in scorling position and promptly went 2-for-18 in those situations on Sunday. Ryan Doumit ended the game with a ground out to short with Joe Mauer on second.
Twins righthander Samuel Deduno lost his third straight start, falling to 7-7.
