The Chicago White Sox snapped a two-game losing skid by defeating the the Minnesota Twins 4-3 on Tuesday night at Target Field. A two-run homer by catcher A.J. Pierzynski in the top of the ninth inning, his 18th of the season, keyed the victory for Chicago. The South Siders improve to 56-47 with the win, while the Twins fall to 44-59.
