Twins Snap Losing Streak

Twins Snap Losing Streak

Joe Mauer drove in two runs, including the go-ahead double in the eighth inning, to push the Minnesota Twins past the Chicago White Sox 4-2 Thursday night.

After rain delayed the first pitch by 2 hours and 6 minutes, the Twins stopped their season-high, five-game losing streak. Mauer, in the middle of the worst year of his six-time All-Star career, also hit a tying single in the third. After 18 games without an RBI, Mauer has three in three days.

With Jake Petricka pitching with runners at the corners with no outs, Mauer hooked a drive down the left-field line. Kurt Suzuki tacked on a sacrifice fly.

Johan Pino, a 30-year-old rookie making his major league debut, got a no decision for the Twins after working seven innings and giving up just five hits and a pair of runs.

Casey Fien, the victim of two Boston home runs Wednesday, pitched a scoreless eighth inning to pick up the win.

Glen Perkins tossed a scoreless ninth for his 18th save in 20 tries, after a bad back kept him from pitching Wednesday in Boston.
