CHICAGO (AP) – Alexei Ramirez drove in the winning run with a two-out single in the bottom of the ninth Saturday and the Chicago White Sox finally beat the Minnesota Twins, 4-3.

It was Chicago’s first win over the Twins in seven meetings this season and ended a nine-game losing streak to Minnesota stretching back to last season.

A.J. Pierzynski, who entered the game when Ramon Castro suffered a broken right hand on passed ball in the eighth inning, doubled off Jose Mijares (0-1) to start the ninth. After two fly outs, Juan Pierre walked and Alex Burnett relieved before Ramirez lined a single to center with Pierzynski beating the throw home.
