Twins beat White Sox 6-5 on Max Kepler's sacrifice fly for ninth victory in a row

CHICAGO - The Twins had two runners thrown out on the basepaths, committed a costly error and saw a reliever give up a game-tying homer in the eighth inning.

Despite the Twins making life more difficult for themselves Tuesday at Guaranteed Rate Field, it didn't stop them from extending their winning streak to nine games with a 6-5 victory against the Chicago White Sox.

It's the 11th time the Twins won nine consecutive games in franchise history, and their first such streak since June 2008. Max Kepler, for the second straight game, drove in the go-ahead run. Byron Buxton drew a leadoff walk in the top of the ninth inning, moved to third on a single and Kepler brought him across the plate with a sacrifice fly.
