The Twins completed the sweep of the Chicago White Sox on Sunday with a 7-0 win in front of a second-consecutive sellout crowd of 39,913.

Max Kepler opened the scoring for the Twins in the bottom of the third but it was Eddie Rosario's three-run home run that busted the game open. It was Rosario's third home run in four games, and his team-leading 16th dinger.

After a rough start to the month of May where Rosario was hitting just .225, the left-handed hitter is slashing .444/.464/.611 in his last 13 games and has raised his batting average to .285.

Kepler followed up Rosario's home run with a three-run blast of his own in the bottom of the seventh, for his 12th of the year cementing the victory.

Starting pitcher Jake Odorizzi was superb allowing zero runs and one hit over 5.1 innings, while striking out nine batters and lowering his ERA to 2.16 on the season.

With the win, the Twins improve to 36-16 and own the best winning percentage in the MLB at .692 and lead the Central Division by 10 games. 

They'll open a two-game series with the Milwaukee Brewers on Monday with first pitch at 6:10.
