Andrew Vaughn tied the game, Billy Hamilton gave the White Sox the lead and José Abreu put the finishing touches on a stunning eighth inning, fueling a 9-5 win over the Twins on Tuesday.

At one point, the White Sox held a 4-1 lead, but the Twins steadily withered away at it where it was a one-run game for Ryan Burr in the eighth inning.
