Minnesota has won the first three games of the four-game set, securing its first series win at home since May 16-18 against Seattle. Twins closer Glen Perkins gave up a leadoff triple to Adam Eaton, who then scored on Gordon Beckham's sacrifice fly to get Chicago within 4-3.

Paul Konerko followed with a pinch-hit single to put the potential tying run on base but Perkins struck out sluggers Jose Abreu and Adam Dunn to end the game, getting Dunn after pinch-runner Leury Garcia stole second. Kevin Correia (4-8) gave up two runs -- one earned -- on five hits and two walks in six innings to pick up the win.

The White Sox have lost seven of their last nine games and are 4-10 in their last 14.
