WHITE SOX 8, TWINS 5
Luis Robert hit a tying homer in the seventh inning and the go-ahead double in the ninth, and the White Sox took the AL Central lead into September by rallying past skidding Minnesota.
The afterglow from Lucas Giolito’s no-hitter faded fast, as the right-hander fell behind 4-0 in his follow-up start, but the White Sox (22-13) surged back to win for the 12th time in 14 games. They’re in sole possession of first place for the first time this season, ahead of Cleveland (21-14) and Minnesota (20-16).
Miguel Sano homered and scored three runs for the Twins, who have lost six straight games.
Jose Abreu tied it with a two-run double off Tyler Clippard in the sixth before Jake Cave’s RBI single in the bottom of the inning pushed the Twins back in front.
Matt Foster (4-0) pitched a perfect eighth for the win. Alex Colome picked up his seventh save.
Giolito gave up his first hit five batters in. He struck out eight in five innings, with two of four runs unearned.
