MINNEAPOLIS - Target Field was a breath of fresh air for Bobby Jenks and the struggling Chicago White Sox offense.

The White Sox put together their biggest inning of the season in the fifth and Jenks rebounded for the save in a 5-2 victory over the Minnesota Twins on Tuesday night.

A.J. Pierzynski and Alexei Ramirez had two-run doubles in a five-run, seven-hit fifth inning for a team that entered the night with the worst batting average in the American League. Freddy Garcia (2-2) gave up two runs on nine hits in seven innings for the win.

Joe Mauer had three hits and Justin Morneau homered for the Twins. But Kevin Slowey (4-3) gave up five runs on eight hits in 4 2-3 innings against Chicago's anemic bats.
