Twins aim for three-game sweep of White Sox

MINNEAPOLIS -- If the Minnesota Twins are to complete a three-game sweep of the Chicago White Sox in Thursday afternoon's series finale, they will need a much different Nik Turley to step onto the mound than the one seen in his first two major league starts.

Turley (0-1, 12.46 ERA) has struggled, allowing 12 earned runs on 17 hits in 8 2/3 innings against San Francisco and Cleveland. He allowed eight runs on nine hits and four walks over 4 2/3 innings against the Indians on June 16.

"You can't defend walk, walk, homer," Twins manager Paul Molitor said after the Cleveland start. "That's what gets you. ... It got out of control in a hurry."
