Blackburn, Twins cap sweep of Chisox


CHICAGO -- Talk about a tough act to follow.

Minnesota's Nick Blackburn had one Wednesday, getting on the mound about 15 hours after teammate Francisco Liriano tossed a no-hitter against the Chicago White Sox.

Turns out Blackburn wasn't unhittable, but he wasn't bad, either. After not winning in a month, he pitched four-hit ball into the seventh inning and watched Jason Kubel drive in a pair of runs as the Twins beat the reeling White Sox 3-2.
