White Sox increase division lead

September 26, 2005


— Mark Buehrle pitched a four-hitter, and Paul Konerko homered, helping the Chicago White Sox beat the Minnesota Twins, 4-1, Sunday, pushing their AL Central lead back to 21â2 games over Cleveland.

Ahead by 15 games Aug. 1, the White Sox have a bit of breathing room again with a week left in the season after winning their third straight. The Indians lost in Kansas City.

Before a spirited crowd of 30,402 in their final regular-season home game - both the crosstown Cubs and Bears were home on the same day - the White Sox waited out a 69-minute rain delay to get their 94th victory.

Baltimore - Manny Ramirez hit his 41st homer in a five-run first, and Johnny Damon connected in a four-run fifth.
