Twins Get 4 in 9th to Beat Sox
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Delmon Young hit a tying single and Michael Cuddyer raced home with the winning run on Alex Rios' throwing error, capping Minnesota's four-run ninth inning and giving the Twins a 7-6 victory over the Chicago White Sox.

The Twins won three of four in the series to move within 1 game of the first-place White Sox.

With Chicago's Bobby Jenks (1-2) on the mound, Orlando Hudson walked in a 10-pitch at-bat and Joe Mauer walked on four straight pitches. Jason Kubel and Cuddyer hit consecutive RBI singles, cutting it to 6-5 and ending Jenks' day.

Sergio Santos walked Jason Repko to load the bases before Young hit a single to right-center. Rios' throw to the infield rolled to the White Sox dugout, allowing Cuddyer to score.

Brian Duensing (3-1) got the win.
