CHICAGO (Associated Press) -

Jose Abreu reached base five times while extending his hitting streak to 21 games, and the Chicago White Sox scored four runs in the eighth inning to beat the Minnesota Twins 10-8 on Friday night.

Abreu had three singles, scored twice and drove in a run. He also walked and was hit by a pitch.

Paul Konerko and Alexei Ramirez delivered consecutive RBI singles in the eighth to give Chicago an 8-7 lead. Tyler Flowers added a run-scoring single in the inning after hitting a solo homer earlier in the game. Alejandro De Aza capped the decisive rally with another RBI single, and the White Sox overcame a shaky start by Chris Sale to win for the sixth time in eight games.
