Carlos Gomez went 3 for 4 with two runs scored and one RBI.

Michael Cuddyer and Brendan Harris also had one RBI and Morneau had two hits for the Twins, who have won three of their last four games.

Winner Nick Blackburn (2-1) surrendered three earned runs and eight hits in seven innings while closer Joe Nathan earned his ninth save this season.

Chicago got one RBI apiece from Jim Thome, Nick Swisher and Carlos Quentin.

Brian Anderson had three hits and Thome two for the White Sox, who have lost two in a row and three of five.

The losing pitcher was reliever Ehren Wassermann (0-1).
