Recap


Twins 2, White Sox 1 (10):
Ryan Doumit doubled leading off the 10th and scored on Alexei Ramirez’s throwing error as visiting Minnesota edged Chicago.

Eduardo Escobar came up with one out and sent a grounder to short, where Ramirez fielded and misfired on the throw, allowing Doumit to scamper home from second. Casey Fien (1-1) picked up the win in relief and Glen Perkins struck out a pair in the bottom of the 10th for his fourth save.

Alejandro De Aza homered and Hector Santiago (0-1) was charged with the unearned run to suffer the loss for the White Sox.

De Aza led off the bottom of the first and took a 1-2 changeup from Vance Worley out to right field for his fourth homer. The Twins drew even in the third when Brian Dozier singled, moved up on a walk and came home on Josh Willingham’s single.

Jake Peavy started for Chicago and struck out nine while allowing one run on six hits in seven innings. Worley struck out seven in as many frames and yielded a run on five hits.

GAME NOTEBOOK:
The Twins had the bases loaded with one out in the eighth but could not push across the go-ahead run. … Chicago placed LF Dayan Viciedo (strained left oblique) on the 15-day disabled list and recalled OF Blake Tekotte from Triple-A Charlotte. … White Sox pitching coach Don Copper (diverticulitis) returned to the bench after missing the previous 10 games.
