White Sox Vs. Twins Final Score: South Siders Hold On For 3-2 Victory

The Minnesota Twins scored their only two runs of the game in the ninth inning and had the game-tying run in scoring position, but young closer Addison Reed was able to nail down the final out and give the Chicago White Sox a much needed 3-2 victory over the Minnesota Twins.

The most encouraging news of all is that for the second straight outing, starter Gavin Floyd looked fantastic. Floyd allowed five hits and no earned runs over seven innings while striking out nine and walking none. He improves to 6-7 with the win.

Though the Sox's offense only managed five hits, they made them count. Alex Rios' towering two-run homer in the fourth inning, his ninth of the year, got the scoring started. Shortstop Alexei Ramirez added an RBI single in the seventh.
