Twins hope to stay hot against White Sox

Right-hander Kyle Gibson gets the start Monday night as the Minnesota Twins open a six-game homestand against the Chicago White Sox at Target Field in Minneapolis.

The Twins finished a productive 5-1 road trip to Milwaukee and Texas with the team's first-ever four-game sweep of the Rangers in Arlington. Jorge Polanco's three-run triple with two outs in the eighth inning snapped a 3-3 tie and was the difference in a 6-3 victory in Sunday afternoon's finale.

Minnesota was a half-game behind the Cleveland Indians in the American League Central when they began the trip in Milwaukee on Tuesday but returns home with a 2 1/2-game edge.
