Kirilloff hits 2 homers as Twins pound White Sox



CHICAGO (AP) — Alex Kirilloff hit two of Minnesota’s five home runs, Jorge Polanco went deep on his birthday for the second time and the Twins beat the Chicago White Sox 8-2.

Kirilloff had his second career multihomer game. He went back to back with Polanco against slumping White Sox starter Michael Kopech in a three-run fifth and added a two-run drive against Vince Velasquez in the seventh.

Max Kepler and Jose Miranda also connected, and the AL Central-leading Twins finished one homer shy of their season high.
