• After committing the third-most errors in the Major Leagues last season, the Twins entered Wednesday with the fifth-fewest. They also had committed only one miscue in their last eight games.

"I think we have some athletic people out there that are catching the ball a lot better, and getting to the ones we're supposed to," Gardenhire said. "The pitcher walks a guy or the first guy gets a hit, you get a ground ball, we catch it and we turn two, and get the boys back in the dugout. That's what he game's all about, pitching and defense."

• According to the Elias Sports Bureau, P.J. Walters' complete-game victory after allowing a first-inning home run Tuesday night was only the second time in the last two years a Major League pitcher went the distance after allowing a first-inning home run. Felix Hernandez was the other, doing it on Opening Day 2011. The last Twins pitcher to do so was Brad Radke in 2003.

• The Twins entered Wednesday 23-14 against the White Sox since 2010, including 14-5 at U.S. Cellular Field.
