Twins closer to first place White Sox
The Twins are a little closer to the top of the AL Central standings after first-place Chicago had its two-game winning streak snapped last night in Seattle.
Franklin Gutierrez hit a two-run single off White Sox closer Bobby Jenks in the 11th inning to give the Mariners the 2-1 win. It was the second time this week Jenks has failed to hold a lead. On Sunday, he blew the save and was tagged with the loss in the Twins' comeback win at Target Field.
