MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Alexei Ramirez homered and had three RBIs, Hector Santiago won for the first time since June 21 and the Chicago White Sox beat the Minnesota Twins 5-2 on Sunday.

Ramirez finished a triple shy of the cycle. He homered to lead off the fifth inning, giving Chicago a 4-2 lead and helping his team win its first road series in more than a month.

Jeff Keppinger's single scored Avisail Garcia to make it 5-2 later in the fifth.

Brian Dozier had two hits and an RBI for Minnesota, which went 2 for 18 with runners in scoring position and lost for the fifth time in six games.

Santiago (4-7) wriggled out of a bases-loaded jam in the fifth, getting Trevor Plouffe and Oswaldo Arcia on popups.
