MINNEAPOLIS, June 25 (UPI) -- Francisco Liriano hurled seven innings of one-run ball and Joe Mauer went 3-for-4 with an RBI Monday in the Minnesota Twins' 4-1 win over the Chicago White Sox.

Liriano (2-7) notched his first victory in nearly a month, holding the White Sox to one run on four hits and a pair of walks.

The left-hander struck out five for the Twins, who claimed the opener of a three-game series.

Mauer's sacrifice fly in the first inning put Minnesota ahead for good, while Ben Revere added four hits for the Twins.

Chicago starter Jake Peavy (6-4) was touched for three runs on 10 hits over six innings.

Alexei Ramirez went 2-for-3 with an RBI for the American League Central-leading White Sox.
