Twins Salvage Chicago Win

Twins Salvage Chicago Win

Scott Diamond pitched into the seventh as Minnesota avoided a three-game sweep by beating the White Sox 4-3 at U.S. Cellular Field.  It was Diamond’s first win since June as he allowed three runs on five hits.  Glen Perkins earned his 36th save.  Chris Colabello, Eric Fryer and Brian Dozier and Oswaldo Arcia all drove in a run for the Twins, who had lost five straight to the Sox.

The Twins open up a four-game series with the Athletics tonight in Oakland.  Kevin Correia takes the mound for Minnesota.  He is 9-and-12 with a 4.31 ERA in 29 starts this season.  The A’s will counter with right-hander Dan Straily, who is 10-and-7 with a 4.11 ERA.
