Twins 10, White Sox 6

The White Sox jumped out to an early four-run lead, but John Danks couldn't protect it as the Twins rallied to victory in the finale. Octavio Dotel surrendered a go-ahead three-run homer in the seventh, and Minnesota added three in the eighth to pull within a half-game of Chicago in the American League Central race.
