I was happy for the opportunity. I havent (had that chance) a whole lot over my career but those are fun situations to be in and when you come through like tonight, its even better.It was a tough way for Chicago to lose as its dropped three straight contests.

Rumors have been swirling about the future of a number of the Twins veterans.Milone gave up five runs on nine hits and a walk in 3 1/3 innings against the White Sox at U.S. Cellular Field on June 30, but has generally fared well against them in his career.
