Twins bullpen falters in loss to Chisox, key road trip looms

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Minus closer Glen Perkins and set to start a nine-game road trip, the Minnesota Twins can't afford any mistakes if they want to remain in the AL wild-card race.

A steady bullpen that's helped Minnesota stay close slipped up Thursday.

J.B. Shuck's two-run, pinch-hit triple in the seventh inning sent the Chicago White Sox to a 6-4 win over Minnesota.
