Twins score four in ninth to beat White Sox 7-6


MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Delmon Young capped a four-run ninth inning with a two-run single, lifting the Minnesota Twins to a 7-6, come-from-behind victory over the Chicago White Sox.

The Twins won three of four games in the series to move 1 1/2 games of the first-place White Sox.

With Chicago closer Bobby Jenks (1-2) on the mound, Orlando Hudson walked in a 10-pitch at-bat and Joe Mauer walked on four straight pitches. Jason Kubel had an RBI single to left-center to make it 6-4. Michael Cuddyer singled in a run and end Jenks' day.

Sergio Santos walked Jason Repko to load the bases before Young hit a single to right-center. Alex Rios' throw to the infield rolled to the White Sox dugout allowing Cuddyer to score.

Brian Duensing (3-1) pitched four innings for the win.
