MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Ronald Belisario failed to retire a batter after he was ordered to remove a bracelet from his glove hand. The reliever's ineffectiveness cost the Chicago White Sox as the Minnesota Twins rallied for a 4-3 victory Sunday.

Chicago led 2-1 when Belisario relieved Scott Carroll to start the seventh and threw two balls to Josh Willingham. Plate umpire Jeff Kellogg walked out to the mound and directed the right-hander to remove a bracelet from his left wrist.

Belisario (3-7) walked Willingham on four pitches, Chris Parmelee singled on the next pitch and Belisario threw a wild pitch before walking Eric Fryer on a 3-2 count, which loaded the bases.

"Yeah, I got mad, because I always wear it like that," Belisaro said.

Javy Guerra relieved and retired Eduardo Escobar on a foulout, and Danny Santana hit a tying sacrifice fly just deep enough to left-center field. Sam Fuld followed with a line-drive single up the middle that drove in two runs and was thrown out at second when he tried to advance.

All three batters that faced Belisario reached and scored.

"Whatever," Belasario said before knocking over a chair in front of his clubhouse locker.

Chicago manager Robin Ventura didn't think the incident had anything to do with the Twins' comeback.

"You just can't put two guys on in that situation. You put yourself in a bind," he said. "We gave them an opportunity there."

White Sox starter Scott Carroll allowed one run and four hits in six innings, leaving after just 78 pitches with a blister on his middle finger.

"It's something that came up in my last start. It flared up a little bit," Carroll said. "I wasn't able to fully finish pitches like I wanted to."

Adrian Nieto homered in the eighth off Casey Fien, Nieto's first in 76 career big league at-bats. The White Sox loaded the bases with one out in the ninth, but Twins All-Star Glen Perkins struck out Alejandro De Aza and retired Gordon Beckham on a flyout for his 25th save in 28 chances.

Jared Burton (2-2) pitched a scoreless inning in relief of Yohan Pino, who didn't allow a hit until two outs in the fifth and wound up giving up two runs and four hits in six innings.

Chicago rookie Jose Abreu had two hits, extending his hitting streak to 17 games, and drove his 79th run, second in the major leagues behind Detroit's Miguel Cabrera,

When Minnesota's Oswaldo Arcia struck out ending the sixth, he snapped his bat over a knee, sending wood splinters flying around the batter's box that were picked up by a batboy.

Santana's RBI triple in the third gave Minnesota its first lead of the series. Chicago went ahead in the sixth on Alexei Ramirez's sacrifice fly and Abreu's RBI double.

NOTES: Jose Quintana (5-7, 3.15 ERA) is slated to start for the White Sox on Tuesday against Detroit's Anibal Sanchez (7-4, 3.45).
