White Sox's Giolito shut down; Detwiler to face Twins

With a five-game lead in the American League Central and 12 games to go, the Minnesota Twins are taking a simple approach as they close in on their first division title since 2010.

"I think just coming out playing good baseball," catcher Mitch Garver said when asked what his team's mindset is for its final homestand, which began with a 5-3 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Monday night in Minneapolis. "We just need to continue what we're doing."

Minnesota (92-58), which took two out of three at second-place Cleveland (87-63) over the weekend, has a magic number of eight. The Twins got a big break heading into their Tuesday night game with the White Sox (65-85), who are in third place but a distant 27 games behind the Twins.
