MINNEAPOLIS -- The Minnesota bullpen helped bail out Phil Hughes after the Twins ace had uncharacteristic outing Sunday. Bob Griese 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. Cody Parkey Jersey . Beckham says "nothing has been confirmed yet, but its something I am very excited about." He adds that "Miami is something that really excites me because there is a great energy down there. Kenny Stills Jersey . Justine finished first with a score of 22.44 while Chloe was second with 21.66 points. Defending champion Hannah Kearney of the U.S., was third at 21.49. A third Dufour-Lapointe sister, Maxime, failed to make the final group and finished 12th while Audrey Robichaud of Quebec City was 10th. . The (35-35-10) Jets have 80 points and are also playing .500 hockey on home ice this season with a 17-17-6 record. Michael Hutchinson will start his second straight game in goal.SUNDERLAND, England - Lazar Markovics first Premier League goal gave Liverpool a 1-0 win against 10-man Sunderland at the Stadium of Light on Saturday.Markovic converted from close range in the ninth minute in a dominant first-half display from Brendan Rodgers side.Sunderland had Liam Bridcutt sent off at the start of the second half, yet it almost equalized when Adam Johnson hit the crossbar with a long range strike.But Liverpool stifled any pressure to take three points that boosts its pursuit of a top-four finish and hopes of qualifying for the Champions League.It remains eighth in the table, but has lost once in its last 12 and is now four points behind Southampton, which is fourth and plays third-place Manchester United on Sunday.I think our confidence is returning, Liverpool manager Rodgers said. When we had to defend, we defended strongly and its great victory for us that keeps our momentum going.Defeat leaves Sunderland three points above the relegation zone with the rest of the teams around it still to play on the weekend.After an energetic start, Liverpool could have had a penalty after three minutes.Markovic tumbled over under a challenge from Wes Brown, but referee Craig Pawson ignored appeals for a spot kick.Sunderlands defence was struggling to pick up the positions of Liverpools three-pronged attack of Fabio Borini, Steven Gerrard and Markovic, and six minutes later Liverpool made its breakthrough.The lively Markovic took advantage of Pawsons decision to play advantage after Borini was cut down on the edge of the area by John OShea, and he was first to the loose ball before tucking it under Sunderland goalkeeper Cosstel Pantilimon. Mike Pouncey Jersey. Markovic was denied a second on the half-hour when he met a clearance out of the penalty area with a stunning volley, only for the ball to hit the crossbar.Striker Borini, who spent last season on loan at Sunderland, was handed a rare start by Rodgers and looked keen to make the most of his opportunity.His link-up play in the first half was efficient, his movement caused confusion in Sunderlands defence but he missed a superb chance to score just before the interval.Borini surged past Brown to reach a tremendous through ball from Emre Can and rounded goalkeeper Pantilimon before hitting the post with the angle to the goal shrinking.Liverpool captain Gerrard was substituted at halftime with a leg problem, as Dejan Lovren came on, but Rodgers side retained its intensity by moving Can further forward.Instantly, he caused Sunderland problems with a bursting run down the right in the 49th, before he was abruptly halted when Bridcutt hauled him down.Bridcutt had been booked in the first half for tripping Gerrard, and was shown his second yellow of the game as Sunderland went to 10 men.But the dismissal galvanized the hosts into attacking Liverpool, and Johnsons long range shot from 25 yards rattled the crossbar after swerving through the wind and wrong-footing goalkeeper Simon Mignolet.To the dismay of Sunderland manager Gus Poyet, it was as close as his team got to an equalizer.Second half, we went for it and created a little bit of nerves for Liverpool, Poyet said. We were not better than Liverpool in terms of position or possession, we were not better in the first half in terms of desire.
