|Twins Score Go-Ahead Run On Error in 10th
|CHICAGO (AP)--Ryan Doumit doubled and scored the go-ahead run in the 10th inning on Alexei Ramirez's throwing error, and the Minnesota Twins beat the Chicago White Sox 2-1 on Saturday.
Doumit led off with a double off Hector Santiago (0-1). After Aaron Hicks popped up a bunt attempt, Eduardo Escobar hit a slow grounder that shortstop Ramirez fielded cleanly but bounced his throw to first base. Escobar was safe on an infield hit and Doumit scored to help Minnesota snap a four-game skid against the White Sox.
Vance Worley pitched seven strong innings, giving up one run and five hits. He struck out seven and walked two.
Casey Fien (1-1) got one out for the win.
