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 multi-homer 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.




CHICAGO (AP) — The Minnesota Twins have placed veteran right-hander Chris Archer on the 15-day injured list because of left hip tightness. Archer had been scheduled to start against the Chicago White Sox. Minnesota recalled right-hander Josh Winder from Triple-A St. Paul to pitch in his place. The 33-year-old Archer is 2-3 with a 3.08 ERA over 15 starts in his first season with the Twins. He agreed to a $3.5 million, one-year contract in March. A two-time All-Star, Archer is 63-84 with a 3.84 ERA over 10 seasons with Tampa Bay, Pittsburgh and Minnesota.




AMES — Iowa State senior guard Jaren Holmes still feels like he has something to prove. Holmes transferred to ISU after averaging 13 and-a-half points and five rebounds at St. Bonaventure last season.

Holmes says that is the attitude he has played with his entire career.

As a fifth year senior, Holmes is trying to provide leadership for a team that lost Izaiah Brockington and Tyrese Hunter off a team that played in the Sweet 16.

Holmes says he is leading in a positive way.

Holmes started all 33 games last season for St. Bonaventure.
