Jul 2 - 7:24 PM

J.B. Shuck went 3-for-4 and knocked in the go-ahead run in the bottom of the eighth as the White Sox edged the Twins 6-5 on Thursday.

Rather than move Adam Eaton back to his old position, the White Sox have used Shuck as their starting center fielder since Austin Jackson went down. He started out really slow, but he's 8-for-18 with two homers during his current five-game hitting streak. Most likely, he'll cool off again soon enough.

J.B. Shuck went 1-for-1 with a pinch-hit, two-run triple in Thursday afternoon's win over the Twins.

Shuck's big two-run three-bagger came with the White Sox trailing 4-3 in the seventh inning. They wouldn't look back from their new-found lead. Nice hit off the bench for the backup outfielder, particularly given the fact that he's only seen 110 at-bats this season. In his limited role, he's hitting .282/.352/.373 with no home runs and 11 RBI.
