Minnesota 1 at Chicago White Sox 7

Record 16 - 15 (1st place, Central Division)

WP: G. Floyd (3-1) LP: N. Blackburn (2-2)
HR: CWS: J Dye (4)

Two former Fort Myers Miracle figured into the scoring in Tuesday's loss as Jason Kubel drove in Joe Mauer for Minnesota's lone run.

Another Fort Myers alumni, pitcher Nick Blackburn, gave up 4 runs (3 earned) on six hits and 3 walks while striking out 1 over 6. It was not a great outing for the former Miracle All-star, who has otherwise been pretty solid for the Twins.

To make matters worse, Gavin Floyd held the Twins to only 1 hit and 3 walks in the game.

The Twins will need to make a showing tonight if they want to hang on to first place. The Chi-Sox trail them by only 1 game after last night's loss.
