White Sox Rally To Beat Twins 5-4

The double-digit losses and ERA over 5.00 are frustrating enough for Mike Pelfrey. Even worse for the Minnesota Twins right-hander is the lack of progress he’s showing this season. “This is by far the worst season of my career,” he said after a 5-4 loss to the Chicago White Sox on Saturday. “It started off brutal and I thought I was getting better for two months, but these last three starts have seemed as (bad) as the first two months.” Pelfrey (4-10) lasted just five-plus innings, giving up five runs, four earned, and four hits with five walks. He left the game in the sixth inning after allowing the first two batters to reach on a single and a walk. The Twins’ bullpen allowed both inherited runners to score to turn a 4-3 lead into a 5-4 deficit.
