Chicago, IL (Sports Network) - Josh Willingham cleared the bases with a tie- breaking three-run double to deep center field with two outs in the seventh inning to lead the Minnesota Twins to a 5-3 win over the Chicago White Sox on Sunday afternoon.

Scott Diamond (1-1) went six strong innings to pick up the win, yielding just two runs -- one earned -- and four hits while striking out five.

Justin Morneau and Aaron Hicks each supplied an RBI for Minnesota, which swept the rain-shortened two-game series with Chicago and has won four consecutive games overall.

Adam Dunn homered for the White Sox, who have scored just five runs in three straight losses. Jeff Keppinger went hitless but picked up two RBI.

Matt Lindstrom (1-1) earned the loss after allowing Willingham's double. Gavin Floyd started for Chicago and allowed one run in six innings.
