MINNEAPOLIS -- A big hit from Sam Fuld and a quick recovery by Glen Perkins gave the Minnesota Twins a win that temporarily helped them forget about a season thats slipping away. Fuld hit a tiebreaking, two-run single off Javy Guerra in a three-run seventh inning, and the Twins defeated the Chicago White Sox 4-3 Sunday to avoid a four-game sweep. "Its easy to fold up and get down, but we stuck with it, fought and came up with a win," Fuld said. Danny Santana had two RBIs for the last-place Twins, who won for just the 11th time in their last 30 games. Perkins loaded the bases in the ninth, and it looked like Minnesotas 10-game homestand was going to end with yet another frustrating defeat. But Perkins retired Gordon Beckham on a flyout for his 25th save in 28 chances. The Twins averted getting swept by the White Sox in a four-game series for the first time in franchise history. "Winning one isnt a great consolation prize, but its better than losing," Perkins said. "Hopefully itll give us a little momentum. We came back, we battled back." Chicago led 2-1 in the seventh when Minnesota loaded the bases against Ronald Belisario (3-7) on walks to Josh Willingham and Eric Fryer around a single by Chris Parmelee. Belisario threw two pitches to Willingham, then was told by umpires to remove a bracelet and cut off a resin-scuffed part of his sleeve. "Yeah, I got mad because I always wear it like that. Whatever," Belisario said. Chicago manager Robin Ventura didnt think the incident had anything to do with the Twins comeback. "You just cant put two guys on in that situation. You put yourself in a bind," he said. "We gave them an opportunity there." Guerra relieved and retired Eduardo Escobar on a foulout, and Santana hit a tying sacrifice fly just deep enough to left-centre field. Fuld followed with a line-drive single up the middle and was thrown out at second when he tried to advance. Adrian Nieto homered in the Chicago eighth off Casey Fien. It was Nietos first homer in 76 career big league at-bats. Jared Burton (2-2) pitched a scoreless inning in relief of Yohan Pino, who didnt allow a hit until two outs in the fifth and wound up giving up two runs and four hits in six innings. Chicago rookie Jose Abreu had two hits, extending his hitting streak to 17 games, and drove his 79th run, second in the major leagues behind Detroits Miguel Cabrera. White Sox starter Scott Carroll allowed one run and four hits in six innings, leaving after just 78 pitches with a blister on his middle finger. "I wasnt able to fully finish pitches like I wanted to. We thought it was best to call it after six," Carroll said. Santanas RBI triple in the third gave Minnesota its first lead of the series. Chicago went ahead in the sixth on Alexei Ramirezs sacrifice fly and Abreus RBI double. When Minnesotas Oswaldo Arcia struck out ending the sixth, he snapped his bat over a knee, sending wood splinters flying around the batters box that were picked up by a batboy. "I would rather have him break it swinging than over his knee," Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said. Gardenhire also hopes Sundays win helps his team forget about a 3-7 homestand that knocked the Twins further out of contention. "A very disappointing homestand, but to get the win today was huge," Gardenhire said. "A lot of smiles out there, a lot of relief. That was probably as intense a ninth inning as youll get." NOTES: Twins 1B Joe Mauer (oblique) is to take batting practice at Target Field this week. ... Gardenhire wasnt worried about a setup for Paul McCartneys concert scheduled for Saturday getting in the way. "Hes going to hit it right through the drums," Gardenhire joked. ...

"Im glad we have the means to find out that someones hurt and do the right thing for them," Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said after a 6-3 win Tuesday night. "For a long time, you had guys playing through these things, but now we have the tests to find out that something is wrong and take care of them." Gardenhire said a few hours before the first pitch that Mauer was probably not going to catch during the three-game series in Detroit, adding he planned to play him in each game as the first baseman or designated hitter. Mauer caught Mondays game against the New York Mets. "He did take a lot of balls off thee mask, but that has nothing to do with this," Gardenhire said Tuesday afternoon, explaining why Mauer was in the original lineup at first base for the series opener in Detroit.dddddddddddd "Hes fine." Justin Morneau was shifted from designated hitter to first to replace Mauer in the field. Outfielder Chris Hermann moved up to hit second in Mauers place in the lineup. Mauer is hitting .324 with 11 homers and 47 RBIs for the Twins, who sit in fourth place in the AL Central. Morneau, who has battled concussions since 2010, said the team made the right choice by placing Mauer on the seven-day DL. "I definitely think it is the best," Morneau said. "The worst thing anyone can do is try to play through a concussion because then you get another one and you can be out for a long time. I know."
