That came on Matt Davidson's sixth-inning homer off Tyler Duffey that pulled the White Sox within one run and wiped out almost the last vestige of a 6-0 lead through two.

The Minnesota Twins right-hander misfired with a wild pitch during an Omar Narvaez at-bat, allowing runners to advance to second and third with one out. But Kintzler found the escape hatch as he struck out Narvaez on a full count and got Leury Garcia on a called third strike.

Minnesota Twins' Brian Dozier (2) is greeted by his teammates after hitting a home run against the Chicago White Sox during the second inning of a baseball game, Thursday, May 11, 2017, in Chicago. "The ankle still doesn't look great, as far aesthetics, but that's how sprained ankles work", manager Paul Molitor said. "I'm trying to do everything I can to speed the process up", Putnam said.

"That's a big league save". The White Sox (15-17) took their fifth consecutive loss.

Ryan Pressly, who entered with an 8.74 ERA, struck out the 2-3-4 hitters in a key seventh to earn the victory.

Chicago starter Derek Holland (3-3) permitted seven runs, but just three earned, and six hits in five innings in taking the loss.

Twins 7, White Sox 6: Eduardo Escobar hit a three-run homer, then added a fourth RBI with a double as the Minnesota Twins outlasted the struggling White Sox in Chicago. "We just obviously didn't get what we wanted in the final result, but that shows a lot heart from this team and what we're capable of".

Twins starter Phil Hughes did not factor in the decision after giving up five runs (four earned) in 4 2/3 innings.

The White Sox didn't threaten again until the eighth inning when Davidson drew a one-out walk.

Party spokesman Benjamin Griveaux said Mr Valls had not applied to the party's selection committee and had 24 hours left to do so. A representative of Republic On the Move said Wednesday that Valls had "not yet" fulfilled the criteria to be a candidate.

The Twins responded with a run of their own in the top of the fifth inning when Sano led off with a walk. Of Escobar's 31 career homers, five have come against the White Sox team that traded him to the Twins for Francisco Liriano in July 2012.

Leadoff batter Brian Dozier sent Holland's 1-1 pitch to left for his fifth of the season with one out.

Joe Mauer congratulates Miguel Sano in the first inning. The Chicago White Sox have lost eight straight games when allowing more than three runs.

The White Sox touched Hughes for two runs in the fifth on Frazier's sacrifice fly - dropped by Twins center fielder Byron Buxton - and Davidson's groundout. The Socks scored another run before Matt Davidson TOOTBLANed to make the third out at third base. But the Twins escaped after Anderson lined a single down the left field line and left fielder Eddie Rosario threw out Davidson at third.

But Chicago closed to 7-6, led by Melky Cabrera's three-run homer off Hughes in the fifth.

"The balance of the guys we've been using in those types of situations have been very good, they gave us the outs we need (and) obviously they kept us in the ballgame", Renteria said.

"It's a possibility. Kind of waiting on what's the best route for us and see what the doctor can tell me about what's going on", he said.

The Minnesota Twins celebrate a 7-6 win over the Chicago White Sox in a baseball game, Thursday, May 11, 2017, in Chicago. Minnesota has won 10 of the last 16 meetings, including five of eight this season. It was the 10th homer for Dozier in his past 19 games against the White Sox, reaching safely in each of those games.

Twins: RHP Ervin Santana (5-1, 1.72 ERA) tries to rebound from his first loss this season when he faces Indians RHP Josh Tomlin (2-3, 7.12) in the opener of a three-game series at Cleveland on Friday night. Chicago meanwhile will next be in action on Friday when they host the San Diego Padres.
