Offense Finally Comes Through For Twins
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Danny Valencia's two-run single snapped Minnesota's 20-inning scoreless streak and rookie Chris Parmelee added a two-run double to help the Twins avoid a sweep with a 5-4 win over the Chicago White Sox on Wednesday night.

Carl Pavano (8-11) pitched 5 1-3 innings, giving up three runs _ one earned _ and 10 hits as Minnesota snapped a five-game losing streak. Joe Nathan closed the game with his 13th save in 16 chances.

Minnesota had been shutout in back-to-back games and scored just one run in the first three games of the four-game series.

White Sox starter John Danks (6-11) lost his second straight start, allowing five runs on six hits and two walks, while striking out four.
