White Sox after sixth straight win

Apr 9, 2008 - 1:27 PM Minnesota (3-5) at Chi White Sox (5-2) 8:11 pm EDT

CHICAGO (Ticker) - Joe Crede has the Chicago White Sox off to a strong start.

Crede and the White Sox look to continue their success on Wednesday when they resume a three-game series against the Minnesota Twins.

The 29-year-old Crede blasted a go-ahead grand slam in the the seventh inning on Monday as the White Sox claimed a 7-4 victory over the Twins, extending their winning streak to five games - their longest since August 2006.

Crede, who endured offseason back surgery and training camp trade rumors, finished with two hits on Monday, raising his batting average to .393 (11-for-28) with two home runs and 10 RBI this season.

John Danks (1-0, 1.35 ERA) helped Chicago pick up its first win of the season and will try to duplicate that performance when he takes the mound on Wednesday.

The lefthander allowed just one run and two hits in 6 2/3 innings while walking two and striking out two en route to a 2-1 victory over the Cleveland Indians on Thursday.

Scott Baker (1-0, 4.05) toes the rubber for the Twins on Wednesday and also pitched well during his season debut.

The 26-year-old righthander surrendered three runs and seven hits in 6 2/3 innings as the Twins claimed a 4-3 victory over the Kansas City Royals on Friday.
