Carlos Santana belted his fourth home run of the season on a two-run shot in the 2nd inning to get the night started in Chicago where the Minnesota Twins riding a seven-game winning streak would tie the game.

There would be empty frames until the 9th inning when Byron Buxton doubled to lead off against John Brebbia (0-1). Max Kepler entered the game as a pinch-hitter in the sixth, then drove him in with a line-drive single to right, giving the Twins the lead and a final 3-2 win over the White Sox.


Caleb Thielbar pitched out of a first-and-third jam in the ninth, striking out Korey Lee to end the game after walking Tommy Pham and giving up a two-out single to Robbie Grossman.
