|Twins Edge White Sox to Avoid Short Series Sweep
|MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Denard Span and the Minnesota Twins picked up Carl Pavano this time, pecking away at John Danks before the go-ahead RBI single by Span in the fourth inning of a 3-2 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Wednesday.
Span had two singles and a walk to give the Twins a lift at the top of the lineup and help them split the two-game series with the White Sox, giving them another 6-3 homestand at Target Field. The Twins are 8-1-2 in series this year.
The Twins were shut out in each of Pavano's last two turns in the rotation, but the veteran right-hander hasn't been fazed by the fall in run support. Pavano (4-3) put up his fourth straight start allowing two earned runs or less, and he's totaled 30 innings during that span.
