MINNEAPOLIS - Jake Peavy baffled Minnesota again, Dayan Viciedo and Adam Dunn homered, and the Chicago White Sox beat the Twins 9-2 on Sunday.

The White Sox scored six runs in the sixth inning to support Peavy (11-11) and stay ahead of Detroit in the AL Central. The Tigers were playing Cleveland on Sunday and travel to Chicago for a makeup game on Monday. It will be the final time the two teams meet this season. Joe Mauer homered in his return after missing five games with back spasms, but the Twins weren't able to avoid the sweep and lost to Chicago for the 13th time in 16 games.

After Alexi Casilla's double in the fifth made it 3-2, Dunn and Viciedo went deep off Scott Diamond (11-8) in the sixth to squash the Twins' comeback attempt.
