|White Sox Winning Streak Over
|MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Francisco Liriano gave the sagging Minnesota Twins a big lift on the mound in a 7-4 victory over Chicago, and faulty fielding by the White Sox on Friday led to the end of their nine-game winning streak.
Liriano (7-7) left with two outs in the eighth inning to a standing ovation from the Target Field fans on a warm and muggy night, deprived lately of this kind of dominant performance. The Twins had lost Liriano's last five starts.
The White Sox made four errors, and Gavin Floyd (5-8) gave up four runs in the fourth inning.
Jesse Crain got his first save by getting the last two outs, striking out Paul Konerko on three pitches.
