CHICAGO -- The Minnesota Twins knew they were playing in a park that gives up home runs. They ended up hitting 11 of them, accounting for all 19 runs in their weekend series against the Chicago White Sox. Kevin Correia pitched seven shutout innings, Brian Dozier and Joe Mauer backed him with home runs and the Twins beat the White Sox 5-2 Sunday. "It sure seems we missed a lot of opportunities, but we did put the ball in the seats," Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said. "As we said coming into this series, in this ballpark, the ball flies. If you get a hold of it pretty decent, its going to go out." The Twins took three of four games in the series and have won nine of 12 against the White Sox this season. Minnesota has scored 23 of its 28 runs during its current road trip via home run, but the Twins are 7 for 62 with runners in scoring position during that stretch. "If you look at our runners in scoring position in this series, I dont think Major League Baseball thought you could do that either," Gardenhire said. "But well take the home runs if thats the way we have to score runs right now, as long as were winning ballgames." Adam Dunn and Conor Gillaspie hit solo home runs off Casey Fien in the ninth. Doziers three-run homer, his 11th of the season, gave the Twins a 3-0 lead in the fifth after Chris Colabello singled and Doug Bernier walked. After Jamey Carroll singled, Mauer hit his ninth homer. Mauer is hitting .351 in 64 career games at U.S. Cellular Field. Correia (8-8) struck out seven, tying a season high. He allowed five hits and one walk in his second scoreless outing of the season. "Early in the year, I had a lot more smoother innings where I was getting deeper in the game," Correia said. "Im trying to get back to firing a lot of strikes and getting quicker outs." Jose Quintana (6-4) gave up five runs in five innings. Thats the most runs hes permitted since giving up six on April 5 against Seattle. Quintana is 0-2 with a 9.15 ERA in four career starts against the Twins. The White Sox have scored three runs or fewer in 17 of his 24 starts. "Its kind of the same old story with him," Dunn said. "He keeps us in every single ballgame and one inning got him." Dunn hit his 27th homer and Gillaspie had his 10th. Notes: The Twins traded INF Carroll to the Kansas City Royals for a player to be named later or cash on Sunday. Earlier in the day, the Royals put 2B Miguel Tejada on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right calf. "If I can go there and contribute in a positive way, I know the team is playing extremely well right now and they have a bunch of good young guys and some great pitching," Carroll said. ... The Twins started Carroll at third base, giving Trevor Plouffe a day off, and started Doug Bernier at shortstop, resting Pedro Florimon. Plouffe is batting .233, and Florimon is hitting .223. "Plouffe is not swinging good. Flori didnt swing good, and Im using everybody anyway," Gardenhire said. ... Twins C Ryan Doumit is eligible to come off the seven-day disabled list this week. He went on the DL on Thursday for concussion-like symptoms. "Hell get re-examined by our doctors when we get home to determine if hes ready to resume baseball activities," Twins assistant GM Rob Antony said. Charlie Coyle Jersey .

Despite everything that Serena Williams has won and done, her sense of self can still fluctuate based on the outcome of a particular match.Doesnt always seem to matter that she owns a record-tying 22 major singles titles heading into the U.S. Open, which begins Monday with a retractable roof at Arthur Ashe Stadium for the first time.Not necessarily a big deal to her that shes spent the past 3+ years entrenched at No. 1 and is the oldest woman ever to top the WTA rankings.And there are times when the 34-year-old American basically forgets that she transcends her sport and has become a cultural icon away from the tennis court.Williams is devastated when she is dealt a setback, such as last years Did that really happen?! loss to Roberta Vinci in the U.S. Open semifinals, ending an attention-grabbing, pressure-piling bid for the first calendar-year Grand Slam by anyone in more than a quarter-century. Williams acknowledges she measures herself constantly.Unfortunately, I definitely do, which I dont think is normal. I definitely feel like when I lose, I dont feel as good about myself, she said.But then I have to, like, remind myself that: `You are Serena Williams! You know? Like, `Are you kidding me? Williams continued, laughing and leaning forward. And its those moments that I have to just, like, come off and be like, `Serena, do you know what youve done? Who you are? What you continue to do, not only in tennis, (but also) off the court? Like, youre awesome. That really just shows the human side of me. Im not a robot.She is at the stage of her career where history is in the offing nearly every time a racket is in her right hand. So while the stakes are different from what they were at Flushing Meadows in 2015, Williams does have something significant to play for yet again.After equaling Steffi Graf for the most Grand Slam titles in the professional era (which dates to 1968) by winning Wimbledon last month, Williams now can break that tie by earning No. 23 in New York. Only Margaret Court owns more major singles trophies, with 24, but more than half of that total came against amateur competition.Not that Williams was immediately ready to think about topping Graf after pulling even with her at the All England Club.One thing I learned about last year is to enjoy the moment, Williams said. Im definiteely going to enjoy this.ddddddddddddGood thing, too, because not everything has gone smoothly since that most recent triumph. Slowed by a bothersome right shoulder, Williams lost in the third round of singles and first round of doubles at the Rio de Janeiro Olympics -- she was a 2012 gold medalist in both events -- and then pulled out of a hard-court tuneup event in Ohio.Williams is assured of remaining at No. 1 until the end of the U.S. Open, which will bring her current streak to 186 weeks in a row, tying another mark held by Graf. Depending on what happens in the tournament, Williams could be overtaken in the rankings by No. 2 Angelique Kerber (who beat Williams in the Australian Open final in January), No. 3 Garbine Muguruza (who beat Williams in the French Open final in June) or No. 4 Agnieszka Radwanska.Its definitely intriguing, Roger Federer said about tracking the women vying for No. 1. Its nice to see this race.Federer, who won five of his mens record 17 Grand Slam titles in New York, will be sitting out the U.S. Open for the first time since 1999 as he takes the rest of the season off to let his left knee heal. A year ago, Federer lost in the final at Flushing Meadows to Novak Djokovic. In Federers mind, the top-ranked Djokovic is the favorite this time, even though No. 2 Andy Murrays summer has been phenomenal.One reason: Federer thinks the installation of the new $150 million roof at the main arena will limit the wind even when its open, which will help Djokovic.Not too long ago, Djokovic appeared to be close to unbeatable no matter the surface or conditions, and a buzz was building about whether he could chase a true Grand Slam. But he exited Wimbledon in the third round, then the Olympics in the first round, while Murray won both of those titles.Novak, obviously, the last two years, really, has played amazing tennis. His consistency -- what Ive done for, like, the last four months, hes been doing for, like, the whole year, Murray said. So I need to try and keep that going, and the U.S. Open is always the next big goal.---AP Sports Writer Rachel Cohen contributed to this report.---Follow Howard Fendrich on Twitter at http://twitter.com/HowardFendrich Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Nike NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys Store Wholesale Jerseys China Jerseys NFL China ' ' '
