Jason Tyner and Brian Buscher drove in five runs for Minnesota and Torii Hunter homered, but reliever Carmen Cali gave up a two-run lead in the seventh inning as the Twins watched the White Sox complete their second straight come-from-behind victory.
Jim Thome hit career homer No. 497, but even more important was his go-ahead RBI single in the seventh to cap off a rally from a two-run deficit. A.J. Pierzynski's two-run homer tied the game in the seventh.
