Buxton shines and struggles in Twins' 6-5 loss to White Sox

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Byron Buxton flashed both the potential that made him baseball's top prospect in recent years, and the struggles that has observers questioning whether he's ready for the majors.

Buxton factored in two of Minnesota's runs in the Twins' 6-5 loss to the Chicago White Sox on Saturday night, including an exciting sequence in the third in which the speedy outfielder scored from first. But he also finished the night hitless and drew boos in the ninth on a bunt pop-up in foul territory.

"Still working on the little things he needs to do," Twins manager Paul Molitor said.
