(MINNEAPOLIS, MN) - The Chicago White Sox’ road trip to oblivion continued Monday night as the Sox fell to the Minnesota Twins 4-1.

Minnesota scored three runs in the bottom of the third on a solo homer by Joe Mauer and a two-run blast from Jason Kubel.

The White Sox scored their lone run on an AJ Pierzynski sacrifice fly in the sixth, but the twins would get the run back in the eighth on Michael Cuddyer's RBI single.

Nick Blackburn allowed a run on six hits over seven innings to even his record at 9 and 9.

Gavin Floyd gave up three runs over six innings to take the loss, falling to 10 and 9.

Chicago has lost four in a row and are 1 and 7 on their current trip.

The White Sox are now six games behind first-place Detroit in the AL Central and 2 1/2 back of the second-place Twins.
