White Sox Rally to Beat Twins 5-4
CHICAGO (AP)--Conor Gillaspie lined a go-ahead single in the sixth inning and the Chicago White Sox rallied to beat the Minnesota Twins 5-4 on Saturday.

Jordan Danks homered and rookie Andre Rienzo pitched 5 1-3 innings in his home debut as the White Sox snapped a five-game losing streak against the Twins.

The White Sox have won just three of their 11 games against Minnesota this season and will try to split the four-game series Sunday.

Justin Morneau and Oswaldo Arcia homered for the Twins.

David Purcey (1-1) struck out two in an inning for the win. Addison Reed earned his 28th save in 33 chances.

Mike Pelfrey (4-10) allowed five runs, four earned, in five-plus innings. He walked five, struck out two and hasn't won a start since July 6.
