Switch-hitting Swisher homers from both sides, White Sox beat Twins 7-5 for sweep

Switch-hitter Nick Swisher homered from both sides of the plate and the Chicago White Sox completed a dominant four-game sweep, beating the Minnesota Twins 7-5 in the American League on Monday.
Paul Konerko hit a go-ahead home run as Chicago won its seventh straight game, all at home. The White Sox outscored the Twins 40-15 in the series.
The White Sox trailed 5-4 when Cabrera doubled against Matt Guerrier (3-2) to start a three-run rally in the seventh. Alexei Ramirez singled and Carlos Quentin tied it with a RBI grounder. Konerko followed with his eighth home run of the season.
Royals 3, Yankees 2
At New York, Jose Guillen finished off his big series against New York in style, hitting a tiebreaking solo home run on an 0-2 pitch off longtime closer Mariano Rivera in the ninth inning to lift Kansas City.
Guillen went 9-for-16 in the four-game series with four homers and 10 RBIs, and also scored six runs to help the Royals gain a split.
Yasuhiko Yabuta (1-0) got Bobby Abreu to ground out with runners on first and second to end the eighth and earn his first major league win.
Mike Mussina, bidding to become the first 10-game winner in the AL, allowed two runs and seven hits in eight innings. He is 8-1 with a 3.11 ERA in his last 10 starts.
