TWINS 9, WHITE SOX 8, 12 INNINGS
Ronald Torreyes was hit by a bases-loaded pitch in Minnesota’s three-run 12th inning, and the Twins maintained their five-game lead in the AL Central.
Marwin Gonzalez hit a tying two-run single off Jose Ruiz (1-4). Torreyes, a September roster addition who has only six plate appearances for the Twins this season, crouched in front of a 2-1 fastball with his bat ready to swing before holding off. The ball grazed his right forearm as he lowered it over the plate, triggering the celebration by the Twins.
The Twins, who improved to 13-5 against the White Sox this season, trimmed their magic number for clinching the division to seven.
Ryan Cordell hit a two-run drive in the top of the 12th off Ryne Harper (4-2), one of four homers allowed by Twins relievers.
