Game story here
Seven straight losses for the White Sox now, which certainly helps lower the magic number.
A lot of Minnesota ties to the Oakland bullpenners who finished this one out.
Boof Bonser, who pitched for the Twins in 2006-08, worked a perfect seventh inning to collect the win, his first of the season.
Mike Wuertz, who pitched his high school ball for Austin, worked the eighth.
Craig Breslow, who pitched well for the Twins in 2008 and less well last season before being waived, handled the ninth for his third save.
And Chris Carter — 0-for-32 entering the game — finally got his first major league hit. It opened Oakland's three-run seventh inning. So Carter now has a batting average of .029.
