White Sox top Twins 7-6 on balk, 2 wild pitches

CHICAGO – Leury Garcia reached a bunt single in the 11th inning and came home on a balk and a pair of wild pitches by Samuel Deduno, giving Chicago White Sox a 7-6 win over the Minnesota Twins on Wednesday.

Before a crowd of just 10,625, Chicago trailed 6-4 in the ninth before Garcia’s run-scoring single off Glen Perkins and Adam Eaton’s RBI grounder forced extra innings.

The speedy Garcia bunted up the third-base line on an 0-2 pitch leading off the 11th and took second when, with Eaton at the plate, Deduno (0-1) never came to a set position and balked.

Eaton struck out, Deduno bounced an outside pitch that hit off Suzuki’s glove as Garcia advanced, and Marcus Semien took a called third strike.

After an intentional walk to Jose Abreu, Deduno threw way outside on a 3-2 to pitch to Adam Dunn, and the ball bounced off Suzuki’s glove as Garcia came home.

Ronald Belisario (1-0) pitched 1 1-3 hitless innings for the win.
