Nick Punto, Torii Hunter and Jason Tyner each had three hits and Mike Redmond drove in three runs for the Twins.
The game's intensity level rose after Pierzynski, a former Twin, possibly spiked Morneau while running out a double play to end the White Sox half of the sixth inning.
Gardenhire stormed out of the dugout before the White Sox took the field and yelled at the umpires for about a minute.
The Twins then scored five times in their half of the sixth to take an 8-4 lead.
Twins ace Johan Santana (6-4) pitched eight innings, allowing four runs and seven hits. The reigning Cy Young winner struck out seven.
Jose Contreras (4-5) gave up seven runs over 5 1-3 innings. He allowed 10 hits and struck out four.
