Pierzynski homers in 9th as White Sox top Twins

Posted: Updated:

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - A.J. Pierzynski hit a two-run home run in the ninth inning and the Chicago White Sox held on to beat the Minnesota Twins 4-3 Tuesday night.

After Alex Rios singled off Jeff Gray (5-1), Pierzynski hit a 0-2 pitch into the right field bleachers for his second homer in as many nights.

Matt Thornton (3-6) pitched a 1-2-3 eighth for the win.

Addison Reed allowed an RBI single to Denard Span in the bottom of the ninth, but still earned his 17th save in 20 chances.

Span had four hits for the Twins, whose win streak was snapped at four.

In his first start with the White Sox, Francisco Liriano, who was traded from Minnesota to Chicago late Saturday, allowed two earned runs and four hits in six innings.
