Morneau belts slam as Twins beat White Sox, 7-5
Chicago • Justin Morneau hit late two homers, including a grand slam, and the Minnesota Twins rallied to beat the Chicago White Sox 7-5 in the first game of a day-night doubleheader on Friday.
The White Sox traded Alex Rios to Texas before the game and were headed toward their fourth straight win before things turned in the seventh inning.
Morneau's drive off reliever Nathan Jones with two out in the seventh wiped out a 3-1 deficit. He added a solo drive in the ninth off Ramon Troncoso, making it 7-3.
Glen Perkins gave up a two-run single to Alexei Ramirez in the bottom half before striking out Adam Dunn to end the game.
