Twins Vs. White Sox Final Score: Minnesota Halted By Gavin Floyd, Chicago In Game Two, 3-2

After taking game one on Monday for their 2nd consecutive win, the Minnesota Twins couldn't find their offense until it was too late in a 3-2 defeat against the White Sox on Tuesday that evened the series.

Minnesota pitcher Liam Hendriks was strong on the mound for the Twins despite the outcome, as he went 6.1 innings with five strikeouts and three earned runs. While Hendriks wound up taking the loss to fall to 0-5 on the season, he did manage to lower his 2012 ERA from 7.39 to 6.82 with the respectable outing.

On a day when Twins hitters actually out-produced their opponents in hits (7 to 5), it took until the bottom of the 9th inning for Minnesota to finally break through in the scoring column. Trailing 3-0, a Jamey Carroll bases-loaded single plated a pair of runners to give White Sox closer Addison Reed a huge scare, although the Twins were unable to take advantage in the end.

The story of the evening would prove to be Chicago starter Gavin Floyd, who reeled off seven scoreless innings, whiffing nine Minnesota hitters in the process. The performance moved Floyd to 6-7 on the year and marked his 2nd consecutive scoreless outing.
