It was a night of punching and counter punching in Chicago.
Every time the Twins punched, the White Sox counter punched, and at the end of the night, had come out on top 8-6. The Twins only had 7 hits, but made the most of them, scoring six runs in the loss. The Twins scored three runs each in the 4th and 5th inning, taking the lead both times, but that lead was only temporary.
The White Sox answered with three runs in the bottom of the 4th, and 5 in the bottom of the 5th as Anthony Swarzak couldn’t make it out of the fifth inning. Swarzak went 4.1 innings, getting shelled for 8 runs on six hits, while walking one ans striking out one.
For the Twins on offense, it was a good night for Joe Mauer, as he went 2-4 with 2 RBI and two runs scored, and Jason Kubel hit a three run home run in the fourth to give the Twins their first lead of the night.
