MINNEAPOLIS - Chris Sale tied a season high with 12 strikeouts in eight dominant innings, Alexei Ramirez hit his 10th homer, and the Chicago White Sox beat Minnesota 7-0 on Saturday night for their third straight win over the Twins.

Sale (10-1) scattered five hits - all singles - and became the first White Sox starter to win 10 of his first 11 decisions in a season since Mark Buehrle in 2005. It was also Sale's 15th career game with 10 or more strikeouts, moving him into a tie for second on the team's all-time list with Juan Pizarro.

Twins starter Logan Darnell (0-1) struggled in his first major league start, giving up seven runs and 11 hits while striking out seven in five innings.

Daniel Webb pitched a scoreless ninth for Chicago, which has won seven of its last 10 games.
