Twins fall again after loss to White Sox

The Twins couldn't recover from another horrible start by Kevin Slowey, falling to the Chicago White Sox 8-7 last night at Target Field.

Slowey failed to make it out of the fourth inning, allowing nine hits and five runs, but the Twins were still ahead thanks to a six-run outburst in the second inning. But reliever Alex Burnett couldn't hold the lead, giving up a go-ahead run-scoring double by AJ Pierzynski in the fifth inning. The Twins closed to within one run in the ninth on Delmon Young's run-scoring single, but Bobby Jenks got out of the inning to save Chicago's ninth straight win.

The White Sox are a full game up on second-place Detroit in the AL Central, while the Twins fell to four-and-a-half games out after dropping the opener of the four-game series. Francisco Liriano starts tonight for the Twins against Gavin Floyd for the Pale Hose.
