MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Chris Herrmann's pinch-hit single in the bottom of the ninth scored pinch-runner Doug Bernier and lifted the Minnesota Twins to a 4-3 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Thursday night.

The Twins trailed 3-2 heading into the eighth, but Joe Mauer doubled and scored on a base hit from Justin Morneau to tie it. Herrmann came through against Ramon Troncoso in the ninth to complete the comeback.

Trevor Plouffe hit a solo homer and Mike Pelfrey gave up three runs and struck out four in 6 1-3 innings for the Twins.

Paul Konerko had two hits and an RBI, and Andre Rienzo gave up two runs — one earned — on four hits with two strikeouts in six innings for the White Sox, who lost their 10th straight on the road.
