MINNEAPOLIS -- Michael Ynoa hadnt pitched in nearly two weeks and had just walked Max Kepler to load the bases in the bottom of the ninth. Wholesale Cheap Jerseys .And when Ynoa missed high with a pitch that nearly went over Brian Doziers head, the White Sox seemed doomed to lose in dramatic fashion for the second straight night.But then Dozier popped out to third to end the inning, Dioner Navarro hit a go-ahead double in the 10th, and the White Sox beat the Twins 6-5 Saturday night to give Ynoa (1-0) his first win this season.You start getting a little deja vu of last night, White Sox manager Robin Ventura said, referring to Friday nights loss in which Tommy Kahnle walked Joe Mauer for the game-winning run in the 12th.He was able to come through. Its always special when a guy gets his first win.Or when a team breaks a three-game skid.Avisail Garcia hit a leadoff double against Fernando Abad (1-4) in the 10th, and then scored easily when Navarro drove a fastball from Abad to the left-field corner for his third hit of the ninth. Navarro entered the game batting .200.Dios had a long run of games in a row, Ventura said. Its just nice to see him get after it.Minnesota was one out from completing a comeback win when Melky Cabreras two-out single in the ninth scored Tim Anderson to make it 5-all heading into the bottom half. The Twins nearly pulled off their second walkoff win in two nights.This guy hasnt pitched in I dont know how long, Navarro said, and he comes in, started the inning kind of shaky with a double and then gets out of it. . He kept us in the game.David Robertson pitched the 10th for his 25th save.Justin Morneau homered and hit an RBI double against his old team, and Cabrera also drove in two against Twins starter Tommy Milone, who looked sharp early before yielding hits to five of his final seven batters.Eduardo Escobar hit a two-out, three-run homer in the eighth off Matt Albers to put the Twins up 5-4. But Brandon Kintzler blew his first save opportunity in nine chances on Cabreras third RBI of the night.Its a disappointing game, but its entertaining, Twins manager Paul Molitor said.GONZALEZ ROLLSAlbers and Dan Jennings failed to hold onto a two-run lead in the eighth, wasting a solid seven-inning performance by starter Miguel Gonzalez. Gonzalez scattered six hits, struck out five and lasted seven innings for third time this month. His 114 pitches were a season high. Minnesotas only run against him the first six innings came in a three-error third that saw Byron Buxton flash his impressive speed on the base paths.Throwing seven innings, its really important for us starters, he said.MORNEAUS NIGHTFormer Twins MVP Morneau went 2-for-5 and hit his second homer of the season in the sixth on a 3-1 pitch off Milone that traveled 402 feet into the left-field seats to make it 4-1. Morneau has now homered against all 30 major-league teams.SALE CLEARS THE AIRChris Sale said he addressed his teammates and coaches after Thursday nights loss to clear the air after last weekends bizarre episode in which the White Sox ace took a pair of scissors to the teams throwback jerseys. Sale, who drew a five-day suspension for the incident, also said he had several 1-on-1 meetings, including one with Ventura.Im not going to get into what we talked about, but we had a long talk, Ventura said. It was good.Likewise, Sale called the meeting good and very productive.TRAINERS ROOMWhite Sox: Ventura gave Adam Eaton the day off, saying hes been beat up quite a bit lately with fouling pitches off his feet and ankles, and getting hit by a pitch Friday night. Ventura said he was also hoping to rest Eaton on Sunday to give him three full days off. Hes not necessarily going to ask for one, but I know he needs one, the manager said. ... INF Todd Frazier missed a second straight game with flu-like symptoms. Ventura said he hoped to have Frazier back on Sunday.UP NEXTWhite Sox: LHP Carlos Rodon (2-7) is expected to be activated Sunday and start his first game since July 5. Rodon went on the DL earlier this month after hurting his wrist when he stumbled on dugout steps.Twins: Ervin Santana (3-9) goes for his first win in three tries against the White Sox this season. Santana lost his previous start despite throwing a complete game against the Atlanta Braves on Tuesday. Cheap China Jerseys . -- Yogi Ferrell orchestrates pretty much everything in Indianas offence. NFL Jerseys Store . Catch all the action on TSN2 at 11pm et/8pm pt. The nine-time Big 12 champion Jayhawks are positioning themselves for another title, as they have run out to a flawless 6-0 mark in conference play thus far. http://www.cheapnfljerseysstore.net/ . -- The Magic have their first victory of the new year. Perth Glory have scored their first win of the A-League season with a 2-0 win over the Wellington Phoenix at nib Stadium.The Phoenix were coming off an opening-round loss to Melbourne City and started strongly but Glory took control and turned their dominance into goals in the second half.Perth got on the board through a Diego Castro penalty and they shouldve doubled their advantage, but Andy Keogh delivered a powerless penalty effort in the 61st minute.It mattered little with Nebojsa Marinkovic scoring with a powerful shot five minutes later having come on for the injured Adam Taggart.It was a sloppy start from the home team but Glory soon settled and over the last half-hour of the first half had plenty of chances they could and should have scored from.Castro, Chris Harold, Marinkovic, Keogh and Rostyn Griffiths all had good looks on goal but none gave Phoenix goalkeeper Glen Moss any serious headaches.While Wellington was hanging in there well in the first half, it didnt last.Perths opening goal came when Adam Parkhouse tripped Harold in the box when he was awaiting a cross from Keogh and Castro had no trouble with the 48th-minute penalty.Keogh also got a clear penalty call in his favour just over 10 minutes later when taken down by Moss when left one-on-one in the box. The Irishman offered a poor penalty that meekly went straight to the keeper.A stunning run byy Josh Risdon in the 66th minute set up Marinkovic to strike a cracking goal to put Perth 2-0. Cheap Jerseys From China Store. The win comes after Perths 3-3 draw at home to Central Coast despite leading 3-0 and now they go on the road to face unbeaten Melbourne City on Friday.Wellington host the also undefeated Sydney FC on Sunday.Glory coach Kenny Lowe was happy with his teams response to last weeks disappointing draw.The first 15 I thought they had come out of the blocks and looked lively and bright, but I thought that was more us being a little bit tepid. Once we got the grips of the game it was OK, Lowe said.We played some good stuff at times and opened them up with some really good football. Both penalties were great football and the goal was an excellent goal as well.Wellington coach Ernie Merrick couldnt find too much to fault in his teams performance apart from the lack of finishing in front of goal.I thought we started off really well with some good passing moves. For the rest of the half, Perth was the strongest team and then we conceded a goal within three minutes of the second half, Merrick said.But in that front third we werent deadly at all really and the Perth defence did well. If we had got one maybe we could have made more of a game of it.
