Sox stretch win streak to seven

April 23, 2006


— Jermaine Dye hit a three-run homer, and Jim Thome added a two-run drive Saturday night to help the Chicago White Sox win their seventh straight game, 7-2 over the Minnesota Twins.

Dye, the 2005 World Series MVP, also doubled in a run in the fifth and is 9-for-15 with runners in scoring position this season. Freddy Garcia (3-1) won his third straight start.

Thome's shot in the eighth against Jesse Crain made it 9-2. It was his ninth homer in April, tying the White Sox's franchise record for the month, set by Frank Thomas in 1996.
