CHICAGO -- Oswaldo Arcias first hit of the season helped give the Minnesota Twins their first win. Ronnie Lott Jersey . Chris Colabello had a career-high six RBIs and doubled twice, Arcia hit a go-ahead triple in the ninth inning and the Twins avoided a season-opening sweep with a 10-9 comeback win Thursday over the Chicago White Sox. Manager Ron Gardenhire got his 999th career victory, and Glen Perkins picked up his first save after squandering the lead Wednesday. "Obviously, every day were just going out and trying to compete," Arcia said through a translator. "We competed the whole series and looking forward to carrying this one over." On Thursday, it was the White Sox who couldnt finish. Trailing 9-8 heading into the ninth after Marcus Semien homered in the bottom of the eighth off Caleb Thielbar (1-0), the Twins scored twice off Chicago closer Matt Lindstrom (0-1), who blew his first save chance in two opportunities. Trevor Plouffe singled with two outs in the ninth to tie the game before Arcias triple off the wall in centre gave Minnesota a 10-9 lead. Arcia had been 0 for 13, but his empty start ended at the best time for Minnesota. Colabellos three-run double in the third gave Minnesota a 3-1 edge, and his fifth-inning double off Jose Quintana gave the Twins a 5-1 lead. He also had an RBI groundout in the seventh to complete a career game when the raw conditions (37 degrees at game time) were challenging. "Obviously, I had to have guys on base in front of me," Colabello said. "Just tried to have good at-bats." What Colabello and Arcia did helped the Twins win in starter Phil Hughes debut. Signed by the Twins to a three-year, $24 million contract after seven years with the Yankees, he lasted five innings in his debut and allowed four runs, seven hits and two home runs while striking out seven. Over his last two seasons with the Yankees, Hughes gave up 59 home runs. The two he allowed Thursday were to Alejandro De Aza and Adam Dunn, but he left with a 5-4 lead. Jose Abreu, signed to a six-year, $68 million contract, helped erase that lead. He went 2 for 4 with a double and triple and four RBIs. His fifth-inning double cut the Twins lead to 5-2, and then his bases-loaded triple against Anthony Swarzak gave the White Sox an 8-5 edge in the sixth. De Azas home run was his third of the season and Dunns tied Dave Kingman for 38th all-time with 442, while Tyler Flowers had a career-high four hits. That put Quintana in position for his first win of the year after he went six innings and allowed five runs -- two earned. "He pitched fine," White Sox manager Robin Ventura said. "I think he had a couple innings there where it got away on him but other than that, he gave us what we needed." He got that no-decision when Josmil Pinto homered in the eighth off Ronald Belisario, and the White Sox lost in the ninth when Lindstrom allowed two runs. "We put up some runs on the board," Lindstrom said. "We came back when we were down, guys putting together great at-bats, playing good defence, so it feels bad kind of letting the team down in that sense." NOTES: The Twins reinstated LHP Brian Duensing from the paternity leave list before the game. RHP Michael Tonkin was optioned to Triple-A Rochester. ... Gardenhire said theyd try to avoid using RHP Casey Fien after Fien sustained a left ankle bruise Wednesday. ... Ventura joked that delays for instant replays are annoying "if they go against us" before saying "thats part of it and were going to have to deal with it." ... The White Sox went 26-50 against the AL Central last season, and Ventura stressed that the White Sox must improve against the division. "You got some people that made the playoffs probably because of our won and loss record." ... Twins RHP Mike Pelfrey will face Indians RHP Danny Salazar on Friday in Cleveland. ... RHP Erik Johnson is scheduled to start Friday for the White Sox in Kansas City against RHP Jeremy Guthrie. Joshua Garnett Jersey . Levante, which had lost five straight including a Copa del Rey game last weekend, fell behind at its Ciutat de Valencia stadium when Ionut Sapanura opened the scoring for Elche in the 26th minute. Eric Reid Jersey . With one week left in the regular season, Cornish - voted The Toughest Player To Bring Down - is a leading candidate for the CFLs Most Outstanding Player award. He has rushed for 1,799 yards and could break Willie Burdens club record for rushing yards in a single season with a 98-yard performance against the B. http://www.thesf49ersshoponline.com/Malcolm-Smith-49ers-Jersey/ . After not scoring 40 points in the opening quarter in the last five seasons, the Rockets have done it five times this season and twice in the last three games.BOSTON - Former major league pitcher Curt Schilling says he has been treated for mouth cancer and blames the disease on his use of chewing tobacco for about 30 years. Schilling discussed details on WEEI-FM in Boston on Wednesday. The former Red Sox right-hander announced in February that he had cancer but hadnt disclosed what kind. He has said he is in remission after seven weeks of radiation and chemotherapy and has lost 75 pounds. "Im not going to sit up here from the pedestal and preach about chewing," he said. "It was an addictive habit. I can think about so many times in my life when it was so relaxing to just sit back and have a dip and do whatever. "And I lost my sense of smell, my taste buds for the most part. I had gum issues, they bled, all this other stuff. None of it was enough to ever make me quit." Schilling revealed the type of cancer two months after Hall of Fame outfielder Tony Gwynn died at the age of 54 of oral cancer, a disease he attributed to years of chewing tobacco. Use of chewing tobacco has been "a norm in the baseball culture," Red Sox manager John Farrell said. "On the heels of the unfortunate passing of Tony Gwynn and now what Curts going through, you would think that this would be more of a current beacon for guys to take note and know that theres a price to be paid if youre one of the unfortunate ones that is stricken by cancer." Major League Baseball prohibits having smokeless tobacco in public view and imposes fines for violations. Minor leaguers cannot use it in games. Former Red Sox left-hander Jon Lester was coming back from treatment for anaplastic large cell lymphoma in 2007, Farrells first year as Bostons pitching coach. Lester, sent to Oakland at the trade deadline last month, was 4-0 that year and won the final game of Bostons four-game sweep of the Colorado Rockies in the World Series. "Any time a public figure who is, unfortunately, diagnosed with cancer, is able to come out and speak about it — I know how hard that can be — it brings awareness," Lester said after Schillings disclosure, "and maybe sheds a little light or a little hope on somebody whos struggling. Marquise Goodwin Jersey. " Before his team faced the Red Sox on Wednesday night, Los Angeles Angels manager Mike Scioscia said the use of smokeless tobacco "is non-existent in the minor leagues during a game. ... You hope that the next generation will heed the mistakes of the prior generation." Schilling is a three-time World Series champion with the Arizona Diamondbacks and Red Sox. "Its a very serious issue," said Baltimore Orioles manager Buck Showalter, Schillings manager with the Diamondbacks in 2000, the year before they won the World Series after Showalter left. Awareness "has gotten a lot better over the years through things like Curt is doing, but theres a long way to go." Schilling played from 2004-07 with the Red Sox, who won the World Series in his first and last seasons with them. "Hes elected to keep it very personal and I wouldnt want to betray that confidence," said Cleveland Indians manager Terry Francona, who managed Boston from 2004-11. "Hes said what hes wanted to say, when hes wanted to say it." Colorado Rockies outfielder Michael Cuddyer said he tries to encourage young players not to use smokeless tobacco. "Anybody that thinks about it or wants to do it because its cool should realize its definitely not," he said. "Youre seeing these guys lives get put in jeopardy because of it. Young players and young kids should be aware of that. Its a disgusting habit." Schilling is being sued by Rhode Islands economic development agency after his video game company received a $75 million state loan guarantee and then collapsed. ___ AP Sports Writers Pat Graham and Janie McCauley and freelancers Patrick Donnelly and Paul Ladewski contributed to this story.
