White Sox 4, Twins 3

MINNEAPOLIS — A.J. Pierzynski hit a two-run homer in the ninth inning, and Chicago held on. After Alex Rios singled off Jeff Gray, Pierzynski hit an 0-and-2 pitch into the rightfield bleachers for his second homer in as many nights. Addison Reed allowed an RBI single to Denard Span in the bottom half but earned his 17th save. In his first start with the White Sox, Francisco Liriano, who was acquired from Minnesota on Saturday, pitched six solid innings.
