Cruz, Twins cruise to 14-4 win over White Sox

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Those 10 days off sure didn't hurt Nelson Cruz's swing.

Whatever's been thrown his way this season, Minnesota's designated hitter has rarely been deterred.

Cruz homered and drove in three runs on four hits in his second game back from a wrist injury, yet another powerful performance at the plate by the 39-year-old for the Twins in a 14-4 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday.
