TWINS 3, WHITE SOX 2
Byron Buxton returned with a bang and so did Michael Pineda, rallying Minnesota past the White Sox to snap a six-game losing streak.
Buxton came off the injured list and had two hits, including the go-ahead single in the seventh inning.
Pineda pitched six strong innings, giving up two runs and six hits in his first outing after being suspended 60 games last year for using a banned diuretic.
Caleb Thielbar (1-0) earned the win with a scoreless inning of relief after the Twins rallied against Chicago’s bullpen. Matt Wisler got his second career save.
Jimmy Cordero (0-2) permitted two runs in relief of White Sox starter Dallas Keuchel.
Tim Anderson had three hits and Eloy Jimenez delivered a two-run double, but Chicago lost for just the third time in 15 games and fell into a tie with Cleveland atop the AL Central.
