White Sox 3, Twins 1
MINNEAPOLIS — Avisail Garcia’s 10th-inning, two-run homer lifted Chicago over Minnesota as the White Sox took two of three games in the weekend series at Target Field.
Minnesota reliever Ryan Pressly (0-2) took the loss while Chicago’s Nate Jones (1-0) came out of the bullpen to pick up the win. David Robertson pitched one inning for his third save of the season in three chances.
Chicago shortstop Leury Garcia led off the 10th inning with a double to the right-center-field gap off Pressly, and he advanced to third on Tyler Saladino’s sacrifice bunt. After Pressly struck out slumping Jose Abreu, Avisail Garcia slugged an 0-1 pitch an estimated 384 feet over the right field wall.
