Twins score go-ahead run on error in 10th

CHICAGO (AP) -- Ryan Doumit doubled and scored the go-ahead run in the 10th inning on Alexei Ramirez's throwing error, and the Minnesota Twins beat the Chicago White Sox 2-1 on Saturday.

Doumit led off with a double off Hector Santiago (0-1). After Aaron Hicks popped up a bunt attempt, Eduardo Escobar hit a slow grounder that shortstop Ramirez fielded cleanly but bounced his throw to first base. Escobar was safe on an infield hit and Doumit scored to help Minnesota snap a four-game skid against the White Sox.

Vance Worley pitched seven strong innings, giving up one run and five hits. He struck out seven and walked two.

Casey Fien (1-1) got one out for the win.
