Alejandro De Aza
Chicago White Sox
Ryan Doumit doubled and scored the go-ahead run in the 10th inning on Alexei Ramirez's throwing error, and the Minnesota Twins beat the Chicago White Sox 2-1 on Saturday.
Doumit led off with a double off Hector Santiago (0-1). After Aaron Hicks popped up a bunt attempt, Eduardo Escobar hit a slow grounder that shortstop Ramirez fielded cleanly but bounced his throw to first base. Escobar was safe on an infield hit and Doumit scored to help Minnesota snap a four-game skid against the White Sox.
Vance Worley pitched seven strong innings, giving up one run and five hits. He struck out seven and walked two.
Casey Fien (1-1) got one out for the win.
White Sox starter Jake Peavy was also effective. Peavy allowed one run and six hits, struck out nine and walked four in seven innings.
Alejandro De Aza's home run off Worley in the first inning put the White Sox ahead 1-0. The drive to right field was De Aza's fifth career leadoff homer.
The Twins tied it 1-all on Josh Willi...
BEST OF MAXIM
Joe Mauer has been locked in at the plate lately for the Minnesota Twins.
Given his history against Chicago White Sox scheduled starter Gavin Floyd, he seems to be in good shape to extend his hitting streak to 11 games Sunday at U.S. Cellular Field.
After Friday's series opener was postponed because of cold and windy conditions, the Twins (7-7) won 2-1 in 10 innings Saturday...
White Sox left-hander John Danks thinks he is ready for the next step in his recovery from August surgery.
Danks is back in Chicago following a stint at extended spring training and plans to meet with team officials Monday. He thinks he is ready to begin a minor league rehab assignment, but that decision is up to the team.
Danks had surgery Aug. 6 to repair a capsule tear and remove...
The Chicago White Sox fell to the Minnesota Twins 5-3 Sunday afternoon. This loss was their third in a row and gives them sole possession of last place in the AL Central.
Despite losing his first three starts, Gavin Floyd seemed to finally find his groove against the Twins. He only gave up three hits over six innings with the only earned run coming off a bases loaded walk. Sadly...
MLB News: The Chicago White Sox recalled Blake Tekotte on Sunday from Triple-A Charlotte. Helping fill the roster void created when Dayan Viciedo went on the disabled list, he is expected to take spot turns and offer bench depth.
Fantasy Ramifications: Tekotte holds no true fantasy baseball value. Not only is he not a starter int he majors, he isn’t even the main reserve. Look...
The Chicago White Sox have placed outfielder Dayan Viciedo
on the disabled list with a strained left oblique, the team has announced.
Viciedo suffered his injury earlier this week while swinging
and missing at a pitch. He was in such pain, that he fell to one knee before
ultimately being removed from the contest. After the game, he told reporters
that it hurt when he...
After Friday's rain out, the White Sox got their series started at home against the Minnesota Twins Saturday afternoon, but unfortunately it was a familiar sight for 2013 Sox followers.
It was yet another pitcher's duel, as both Jake Peavy and Vance Worley brought their A-games.
Both pitchers went 7 innings, allowing only one run before handing it over to their...
After an off season in which there was much talk about how well the White Sox do staying healthy - exponentially more so than most MLB teams - that good fortune has not been the case early on in 2013, as Dayan Viciedo becomes the fifth member of the squad to hit the disabled list.
When he was hitting this past Thursday in Toronto, Viciedo strained his oblique with one...
For Josh Willingham, that flub in the fourth was an eternity ago when he came to the plate in a big spot for the Minnesota Twins.
It was just about coming up with another clutch hit.
Willingham atoned for an earlier misplay with a tiebreaking three-run double in Minnesota's four-run seventh inning, leading the Twins to a 5-3 victory over the slumping Chicago White Sox on Sunday...
The Minnesota Twins can't catch a break from the weather.
The Twins' series opener in Chicago against the White Sox on Friday was called off due to a forecast of cold, windy weather. It's the third time this week that bad weather has kept Minnesota off the field:
On Sunday, the Twins' home game against the Mets was washed out and on Wednesday, their series finale...
After losing second baseman Gordon Beckham last week, the Chicago White Sox suffered a further blow on Thursday night when left fielder Dayan Viciedo left the game with an oblique injury.
Daryl van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reported that Viciedo hurt his left oblique swinging at a pitch from Esmil Rogers during the 3-1 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays. Viciedo was quick...
The White Sox were scheduled to start a three-game weekend series against the division foe Minnesota Twins on Friday before the game got postponed until a later date (likely August).
Still, a two-game series will kick off at US Cellular Field on Saturday.
The opener of the series and the ten game homestand will see Jake Peavy (2-1, 3.93 ERA) taking...
Struggling a little here to get woke up to bring you this game. It was a heartbreaking loss in extra innings yesterday, so lets hope the boys have put it behind them and we can get a win today. Fingers crossed we can get a video feed today. As far as I know it’s still Gavin Floyd with the pass to the mound today.
A year ago today Philip Humber threw the...
You will find dugout notes during the home stands when the boys are at The Cell. Road trip notes as we travel. Just a reminder that I will not be with you for the game on ANZAC Day but there will be a Dugout Notes later in the day.
**Game One with the Minnesota Twins
The opening game of the series was postponed due to extreme cold and rain. Make up date is yet to be announced...
Yo, hey. I might do some radio tomorrow. You people better listen. Put it on your calendar for 3pm.
Aaron Hicks is off to a slow start, but how concerned should we really be?
MLS broadcasts are a tight ship.
Don’t know if you’ve seen this, but here is a Lithuanian hockey player doing a little head hunting. Of a referee.

The Indians will play the White Sox for the second series this season. The first series was very entertaining and I expect this one to be the same.
