      Juan Uribe went deep twice this afternoon to help propel the Chicago White Sox to a 7-3 win to complete a 3-game sweep of the Minnesota Twins at US Cellular Field this afternoon.

      The win now extends the White Sox current winning streak to 8 games,and 12 of the last 13 games.

      After the Twins jumped out to an early 1-0 lead in the 1st inning off starter Jose Contreras,the Sox tied it up in the 3rd inning against Twins starter Carlos Silva.Scott Podsednik led off with a double,then went to 3rd on Tadahito Iguchi's single,then Pods came home on Jim Thome's sac fly to tie the game at 1.

      The Sox took the lead for good in the 4th inning on back-to-back homers from Joe Crede and Juan Uribe to make it 3-1.

      After Joe Mauer homered in the 6th to bring Minnesota to within 1 at 3-2,the Sox exploded for 4 runs in the bottom of the frame.Highlighted by back-to-back blasts by Uribe,who hit a 3-run shot,and Brian Anderson,his 1st of the season,making it a 7-2 game.

      The Twins added a single tally in the 9th inning off Cliff Politte.

      SWEEP DREAMS; This was the 1st White Sox sweep of the Twins at home since June 30-July 2,2003.

      The Sox hit back-to-back homers today was the 1st time that they have done this since June 11,2000 when Frank Thomas and Magglio Ordonez followed by Ray Durham and Jose Valentin did it aginst the Chicago Cubs.

      Jim Thome failed to reach base today,going 0-4 and snappping his Major League record 17 games at the outset of the season scoring a run.Thome had an RBI sac fly and hit the ball hard every time.

      Jose Contreras went 8 innings for his 3rd win of the season,extending his personal winning streak to 11 regular season games dating back to August 21,2005.Contreras gave up 2 runs on 6 hits,walking 3 and striking out 2.

      Uribe and Anderson combined for 5 hits from the bottom of the lineup this afternoon.Both were coming into today's action hitting below .200 on the year.

      The Sox have now won 10 straight against AL Central opponents this year.

      White Sox record;13-5,1st place, 2 games ahead of Detroit
