    Brian Dozier's RBI-single with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning lifted the Minnesota Twins to a 5-4 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Friday night. Kurt Suzuki had three hits and an RBI and the Twins picked up closer Glen Perkins (3-0), who gave up two runs in the top of the ninth to blow his third save in 21 chances. 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. Gordon Beckham and Jose Abreu homered for the White Sox.
