MINNEAPOLIS – Ryan Doumit hit a go-ahead double in the eighth inning, leading the Minnesota Twins over the White Sox, 7-5, on Tuesday night.

Joe Mauer homered and Trevor Plouffe had an RBI single in Minnesota's four-run first inning off Dylan Axelrod.

The Sox came back to tie it at 5 in the eighth when Alex Rios worked a leadoff walk from reliever Jared Burton (1-4), stole second and scored on Paul Konerko's single that bounced off the pitcher's mound and into center field.

Clete Thomas walked with two outs against Ramon Troncoso (0-2) in the eighth. Mauer followed with a single – his third hit of the game – and Doumit doubled. Doumit also had three hits.
