Minnesota Twins 6
Chicago White Sox 4
Although both teams had the same number of hits – nine in nine innings – and the Twins had four errors compared to the White Sox's zero, they still outplayed Chicago for the win at Target Field on Sunday. Twins' relief pitcher Ryan Pressly didn't take the mound until the ninth inning, but he was still credited with his first career save.
That gave the Twins a 2-1 series win, closing out the month of July with a winning record. However, they're still in last place of their division.
Here are a few key moments from Sunday's game:
Outfielder Bryon Buxton had to be subbed out Sunday after injuring his knee while running the bases. The Argus Leader says Buxton hurt himself when he stole second base. He was replaced with Eddie Rosario. Fans pointed out on Twitter how fast Buxton was running to not have slid into second. The Twins have listed him as day-to-day.

Kenny Vargas hit a two-run homer in the first inning to give Twins an early lead. Fans went crazy:
Vargas scored again in the third inning off of Jorge Polanco's double. Then Brian Dozier, homered in the fifth inning and AGAIN in the seventh inning.
The Twins play the Indians in Cleveland on Monday evening. Pitching for the Twins its to be determined.
