Making his first start against the rival White Sox since his no-hitter in Chicago nearly 14 months ago, Liriano (2-7) allowed just three singles, two walks and a double. The left-hander struck out five, winning for the first time
this month while holding the White Sox without a run until Alexei Ramirez's sacrifice fly in the seventh.
 
Jared Burton notched the save for the second straight game for the Twins, filling in for injured closer Matt Capps.
