Twins Vs. White Sox Final Score: Twins Get Walk-Off Win In Game 1

The Minnesota Twins won the first game of their three game series against the Chicago White Sox 7-6 on Monday night. A sac fly from Jamey Carroll won them the game.

The win extends the Twins' win streak to four games after sweeping the Indians in a three-game set at home. It's also a measure of revenge, as Minnesota lost three in Chicago last week.

It was a high-scoring first inning, with the Sox jumping out to a 4-0 lead off of a Paul Konerko RBI-single and a three-run home run from A.J. Pierzynski. The Twins tied it in the bottom of the first with RBI singles from Joe Mauer, Josh Willingham and Danny Valencia and Mauer scoring on a fielder's choice.

The Twins made it 6-4 in the third inning after Ryan Doumit hit an RBI-single and a sac fly from Valencia.

Alejandro De Aza had RBI-singles in the fourth and eighth innings to tie the game at 6-6 before Carroll's sac fly ended it.

It's the fourth walk-off win of the season for Minnesota, via Joe Christensen of the Star Tribune.

The Twins pulled starter Cole De Vries after five innings. He gave up seven hits, five runs (four earned) and struck out three.

Reliever Glen Perkins (2-1) got the win for his one inning of work in the ninth. Brett Myers (0-1) pitched only the ninth for Chicago and came away with the loss.

Jose Quintana pitched seven innings for Chicago, giving up 10 hits, six runs (four earned) and striking out none.

Game 2 is scheduled for 8:10 p.m. ET Tuesday at Target Field.
