THE SIDELINES : Twins Rally to Beat White Sox, 6-4

From Times wire services

John Moses reached on a bloop double and scored on Al Newman's ground out to break a seventh-inning tie, lifting the Minnesota Twins to a 6-4 victory over the Chicago White Sox today.

Chicago had taken a 4-3 lead in the top of the inning when Scott Fletcher singled, went to second on a wild pitch by reliever Juan Berenguer, 8-3, and scored on Ivan Calderon's single.

Brian Harper began the Twins' seventh with his sixth home run, making it 4-4 and chasing starter Melido Perez in favor of Shawn Hillegas, 6-10.

Moses then lofted a pop fly that fell between third baseman Carlos Martinez and diving left fielder Lance Johnson. After Greg Gagne's sacrifice bunt moved Moses to third, Newman grounded to second with the infield in. Second baseman Steve Lyons bobbled the ball and Moses scored as Newman was retired.

Moses singled in an insurance run in the eighth.
