The Minnesota Twins took the last of four lead changes in a back-and-forth affair against the Chicago White Sox, securing a 4-2 victory on Thursday at Target Field.

The Twins took the lead in the eighth inning and held on for the victory. The Twins scored on an RBI double by Joe Mauer off Jake Petricka, scoring Danny Santana.

Josh Willingham had the power at the plate for the Minnesota Twins. Josh went 1-4, drove in one and scored one run. He homered in the second inning.

Yohan Pino baffled the Chicago White Sox, striking out seven batters in his major league debut. Pino allowed two earned runs, five hits and one walk over seven innings.

Casey Fien got it done on the mound on the way to a win. He pitched one shutout inning. He struck out one, walked none and surrendered no hits.

Petricka ended up on the wrong side of the pitching decision, charged with the loss. He lasted one inning, walked one, struck out one, and allowed two runs.

The Twins jumped out to an early 1-0 lead in the bottom of the second. A solo blast by Willingham started the inning off.
