White Sox Need Extras to Top Twins
The Chicago White Sox took Minnesota pitcher Paul Hale's best shot and still were able to claim a win at Target Field. The final score had Chicago getting past the Twins, 6-5. Hale went 7 innings and allowed 4 earned runs, striking out 9. The win was Dawrin Frias's in relief. His record improves to 1-0. Julián Rivera took the loss for Minnesota. The first-place White Sox lifted their record to 85-57.

Chicago used the timely hitting of David Chester to seize the win. The first baseman stroked a run-scoring single in the top of the tenth inning to put the White Sox on top, 6-5. It was his only hit in 4 at-bats, but it was a game-changer.

"This was one of those 'not to be denied' games," said Chicago field general Brian Snitker.
