MINNEAPOLIS, July 18 (UPI) -- Michael Cuddyer scored on a throwing error to cap a four-run, ninth-inning rally that gave the Minnesota Twins a 7-6 win over the Chicago White Sox Sunday.
Trailing 6-3 entering the final frame, the Twins scored four runs off White Sox relievers Bobby Jenks (1-2) and Sergio Santos to take three wins in a four-game set at Target Field and pull to within 1 1/2 games of Chicago atop the American League Central.
Jenks walked Orlando Hudson and Joe Mauer to start the inning and Jason Kubel and Cuddyer followed with RBI singles to get the Twins to within 6-5. Santos relieved and issued a walk to Jason Repko to load the bases.
Delmon Young followed with bloop single to center fielder Alex Rios, scoring pinch-runner Nick Punto with the tying run. But Rios then unloaded a throw that sailed over the infield, allowing Cuddyer to trot home with the game-winner.
Brian Duensing (3-1) collected the victory with four innings of one-run relief.
Gordon Beckham went 4-for-4 with a pair of RBI for the White Sox.
