Minneapolis, MN (Sports Network) - Jake Peavy pitched into the seventh inning Tuesday, striking out nine and allowing just four hits in a 3-0 win, as the White Sox beat the Twins for the third time in two days.

Peavy (7-7) earned just his third win in 11 starts since the beginning of July, walking two and throwing 73 of his 105 pitches for strikes.

The performance followed Zach Stewart's near-perfect game for Chicago on Monday, when the White Sox swept a doubleheader to open this four-game series.

Alex Rios had a solo homer and Alejandro De Aza had two hits, including an RBI single for Chicago in this one.

Facing three games in two days, the struggling Twins made a rare move.

They became the first team in 25 years to start three players making their major league debuts in the same game.

Australian-born righty Liam Hendriks (0-1) pitched admirably in his debut, but was saddled with the loss after giving up three runs on four hits in seven innings.

First baseman Chris Parmelee and center fielder Joe Benson were also called up from the minor leagues to make their MLB debuts, but arrived to see the Twins lose their fifth straight game.

Parmelee was 2-for-4 with leadoff singles in the second and fourth innings, while Benson batted first in the order and went 0-for-3 with a walk.
