Glen Perkins blew the save but picked up the win after allowing two runs on four hits and a walks to the White Sox on Friday.
Just one of those nights for Perkins who was coming off five-straight scoreless appearances. The White Sox peppered him with a few base hits to turn the game around, but only tied it up and while Perkins' owners are bummed about the runs charged, he still back-doored into the win later on. He'll be right back in the thick of it the next time the Twins have a need for a closer.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Jed Lowrie left Monday's game with a thumb injury. He's going back to Houston Tuesday for an MRI.
In all likelihood Jonathan Villar or Marwin Gonzalez will fill in for Lowrie if he misses extended time, but there's an outside chance the first-place Astros call up uber-prospect Carlos Correa for his first major league taste. Correa is murdering the Texas League (Double-A) to the tune of .375/.429/.719 with four home runs and two stolen bases. He's worth a speculative add in competitive leagues until the situation becomes more clear. Astros GM Jeff Luhnow has hinted that he wouldn't be scared to "lift" Correa straight from Double-A at some point. Analysis: Spencer Silva
