MINNEAPOLIS - Dayan Viciedo hit a three-run homer and Alejandro De Aza added a two-run shot as the Chicago White Sox topped the Minnesota Twins 8-5 Saturday night.

Viciedo's home run gave him five RBIs in his last two games, equaling his total from July 10 through Aug. 14.

Chris Sale (9-11) gave up four consecutive two-out hits in the third inning as the Twins scored three times.

The left-hander won three straight starts for the first time this season, giving up three runs and nine hits in seven innings, striking out eight and walking one.

Andrew Albers (2-1) took the loss after beginning his career with 17 1-3 scoreless innings, a record for a Twins starter. He allowed five runs and eight hits in seven innings.
