Diamond pitches into 7th of Twins' 4-3 win

Posted:

CHICAGO (AP) -- Scott Diamond pitched into the seventh inning for his first win since June, and the Minnesota Twins avoided a three-game sweep by beating the Chicago White Sox 4-3 on Wednesday.

Diamond allowed three runs and five hits in 6 1-3 innings to earn his first big league win since June 20 against the White Sox. Since then, he was 0-5 with a 6.20 ERA in eight starts and spent more than a month at Triple-A Rochester.

Minnesota had only scored four runs during the first two games of the series, but matched that in the first two innings, scoring once in the first and three times in the second against John Danks.

Oswaldo Arcia, Chris Colabello, Eric Fryer and Brian Dozier drove in runs that helped the Twins win for the second time in eight games.
