Humber Throws 7 Shutout Inning, White Sox Win 2-1
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Philip Humber pitched seven scoreless innings and the Chicago White Sox beat the Minnesota Twins 2-1 Monday in the first game of a day-night doubleheader.

Juan Pierre had three hits for the White Sox, who ended a four-game skid.

Brian Dinkelman had a career-high three hits for the Twins, who have lost three straight and seven of 10.

Matt Thornton pitched a scoreless 1 1-3 innings, and Sergio Santos allowed one run in the ninth before Chris Sale earned his sixth save in seven chances.

Anthony Swarzak (3-6) took the loss, allowing seven hits and struck out four in eight innings.
