WHITE SOX 9, TWINS 4

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Adam Dunn homered twice, doubled and drove in five runs, powering the Chicago White Sox past Minnesota.

Dunn hit a pair of two-run shots for his 35th career multihomer game. He’s hit three home runs in the last two games and has nine this year.

Dayan Viciedo also went deep for the second straight day, helping Dylan Axelrod (1-3) pick up his first victory this season.

ROYALS 9, ANGELS 5

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Lorenzo Cain hit a three-run double and Billy Butler capped his most productive series of the season with a two-run single, leading Kansas City over Los Angeles.

Wade Davis (3-3) was charged with four runs and nine hits over 5 1-3 innings in the rubber game of the series.

Barry Enright (0-2) gave up four runs, five hits and two walks in two-plus innings, leaving with the bases loaded and none out in the Royals’ seven-run third.

CUBS 6, ROCKIES 3

CHICAGO (AP) — Jeff Samardzija hit a two-run home run and pitched eight strong innings for his first win since opening day and the Cubs beat the Rockies.

David DeJesus led off the first inning with a home run and Anthony Rizzo had two hits for the Cubs, who won back-to-back series for the first time this season.

CARDINALS 4, METS 2

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Rookie Shelby Miller followed up his nearly perfect one-hitter with 5 2-3 scoreless innings and the Cardinals scored the go-ahead run in the seventh on a wild pitch in a victory over the Mets.

Rick Ankiel’s two-run homer off rookie Seth Maness (3-0) tied it in the top of the seventh and was his first against the team that converted the former left-handed pitcher to an outfielder in 2005.

Shaun Marcum (0-4) made it out of the fifth for the first time in four starts since beginning the year on the 15-day disabled list.

He left the game with two on and two out in the seventh and Scott Rice’s wild pitch to pinch hitter Ty Wigginton allowed Daniel Descalso to score the go-ahead run.
