White Sox Win 10 Inning Contest Against Twins
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Dioner Navarro hit a tiebreaking double in the 10th inning to drive in Avisail Garcia and lift the Chicago White Sox to a 6-5 win over the Minnesota Twins on Saturday night.
Garcia hit a leadoff double against Fernando Abad (1-4), and then scored easily when Navarro drove a fastball from Abad to the left-field corner.
Michael Ynoa (1-0) worked out of a bases-loaded jam in the ninth for his first win of the season, David Robertson pitched the 10th for his 25th save.
Minnesota was one out from completing a comeback win when Melky Cabrera's two-out single in the ninth scored Tim Anderson to make it 5-all heading into the bottom half. The Twins nearly pulled off their second walkoff win in two nights when Ynoa walked Max Kepler to load the bases for Brian Dozier, who popped out to third to send it to extra innings.
