Right-hander Nick Blackburn pitched seven innings and Orlando Cabrera led the offense Monday night as the Minnesota Twins continued their late surge with a 7-0 victory over the Chicago White Sox. The second-place Twins, who have won five of six, moved to within 2 1/2 games of idle Detroit in the American League Central. Blackburn (11-11) gave up eight singles with no walks and six strikeouts to earn his first road win since May 31 against Tampa Bay. He is 4-1 this season against Chicago.

You'll never guess which team is tied for the most wins — and has by far the best earned-run average — in the majors this month. Give up? It's the Minnesota Twins, who lost their first game in June, then won 12 of the next 14. And in their last four games heading into the weekend, Twins starters have allowed just three runs, getting complete games from Carl Pavano and Scott Baker, a seven-inning no-hitter from Francisco Liriano and eight shutout innings from Nick Blackburn.

With one swing, Ken Griffey Jr. tied the score, roused the Seattle Mariners and sent a virtual Mother's Day card sailing over the right-field wall. "It's a cheap way of me not buying my mom a gift," Griffey joked after Seattle's 5-3 comeback victory over the Minnesota Twins on Sunday ended the Mariners' six-game losing streak. Griffey's first and 400th home runs both came on his dad's birthday, and he hit No. 500 on Father's Day.

Three games into the 2012 season, the Angels are concerned that Vernon Wells is pressing to bounce back from his career-worst 2011, when the left fielder hit .218 with a .248 on-base percentage, 25 home runs and 66 runs batted in. Wells hit .154 (two for 13) with four strikeouts in the season-opening three-game series against Kansas City, whiffing twice on Sunday on pitches that were well above the strike zone. Wells was summoned by Manager Mike Scioscia for a brief closed-door chat before Monday's game, and he was not in the lineup for the road opener against the Minnesota Twins in Target Field.
