Twins beat White Sox in bottom-of-the-ninth thriller

Posted:
 MINNEAPOLIS (KTTC/AP) -- Minnesota Twins fans got a real thrill Friday night at Target Field when the home team came through in the bottom of the ninth.  With two outs, Brian Dozier ripped an RBI-single and propelled the Twins past the Chicago White Sox 5-4.

Twins closer Glen Perkins (3-0) had actually blown his third save, giving up two runs in the top of the ninth before Dozier and his mates turned the tables on the Sox to give some relief to the reliever.

Daniel Webb (4-1) walked Eduardo Escobar and Sam Fuld with one out in the ninth and Escobar beat the throw home with a beautiful slide to win it. The play was confirmed upon review.

Kurt Suzuki had three hits and an RBI for the Twins. Gordon Beckham and Jose Abreu homered for the White Sox.
