*Top of the Fourth  – The Sox finally got on the board when, Viciedo hit his second home run in two days with A.Garcia(walk) on board cutting the Twinkies lead to a score of 3 – 2.

*Top of the Fifth – The Sox tied up the score when, Semien tapped a single to center and made second on a wild pitch, Eaton’s single together with Semien’s speed got him home for a 3 all ball game.

*Bottom of the Fifth – The Twins took the lead and never looked back, Vargas singled to right,  Nunez(double to left) scored,Mauer to second(moved to 3rd on a Pinto fly out), Arcia hit into a fielders choice, getting Mauer home. After Lindstrom came on for Danks on the mound, Escobar’s triple saw both Arcia and Hicks get home.

*Bottom of the Sixth – Saw the Twins add to the run tally when, Vargas homered with Mauer(walk) on base for a 10 to 3 lead.

*Top of the Eighth –  would be the Sox final run for the day when, on a Viciedo single, Taylor made it off the pond for a 10 to 4 Twins lead.
