Minnesota Twins 2

Chicago White Sox 7

The Minnesota Twins dropped their fourth straight game on Saturday, losing to Chicago 6-2. Despite a first inning lead, the Twins couldn't hold and lost their 22nd game of the season.

1. Calling all arms

Chicago scored at least a run in all but three innings on Saturday. The Twins came into the game allowing the most runs in the American League.

2. Park leaves with injury

In the top of first, Byung Ho Park was hit by a pitch from Chris Sale and it resulted in him leaving the game. Joe Mauer was scheduled to have the night off, but he entered in the bottom half replacing Park.

3. Rough return Santana

Ervin Santana pitched for first time since being activated from the DL, and it did not go well. He threw 81 pitches (49 for strikes) in 3.1 innings and allowed 50 percent of the baserunners he faced to reach.
