MINNEAPOLIS, July 28 (UPI) -- Mark Buehrle was 10 outs from his second straight perfect game but Minnesota then pounced on the Chicago White Sox left-hander and won 5-3.

Jermaine Dye hit a solo homer and Gordon Beckham had two RBI with a single in the ninth for the White Sox.

Jose Mijares (1-2) gave up a hit in 1 2/3 innings for the victory and Joe Nathan retired the final batter to pick up his 28th save.

Nick Punto had two RBI for the Twins, who have won three in a row.
