     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Jose Abreu hit a two-run homer in the first inning of the second game of a doubleheader to spoil Zack Littell's major league debut and help Chicago bounce back from a late lapse in the opener, and the White Sox beat the Twins 6-3 for a split on Tuesday.
 
     In the first game, Eduardo Escobar hit a three-run homer with two outs in the eighth for the Twins in a 4-2 victory that ruined a stellar start by White Sox right-hander Reynaldo Lopez.
 
     Abreu, who hit an RBI double in the opener, hit a first-pitch fastball from Littell (0-1) left over the middle of the plate onto the grass berm beyond center field. With an RBI single by Kevan Smith and an RBI double by Adam Engel, the White Sox staked starter Lucas Giolito (4-6) to a 4-0 lead. Giolito took advantage of the early cushion and completed six innings, and a two-run double by Yolmer Sanchez in the fourth provided further support.
 
     Littell, added as the 26th player for the doubleheader, was acquired last July 30 from the New York Yankees in a trade for starting pitcher Jaime Garcia. The 22-year-old got nine outs, allowing six runs on six hits and four walks.
 
     Escobar did his best to bring the Twins back again, with RBI doubles in the third and the eighth innings. The White Sox bullpen held this time, though. Luis Avilan struck out Max Kepler with men on second and third in the eighth, and Joakim Soria fanned Mitch Garver. Soria had runners at the corners in the ninth, but he finished his fifth save in seven opportunities.
 
     Escobar went 5 for 8 with five RBIs in the doubleheader. Traded to the Twins in 2012 for starting pitcher Francisco Liriano, Escobar is batting .325 with nine doubles, four homers and 17 RBIs in his past 23 games against the White Sox.
 
     Once again, the dogged and affable Venezuelan seemingly destined for a utility role has dug himself in the middle of the lineup as a valuable everyday player. He's on pace for a 30-homer, 60-double season.

     ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - The Minnesota Wild have hired Jack Ferreira as an assistant to new general manager Paul Fenton.
 
     The Wild made the announcement on Tuesday about Ferreira, 73, who is a long-time mentor to Fenton. Ferreira was GM of the Minnesota North Stars (1988-90) and San Jose Sharks (1990-92) for two seasons each before five years as general manager of the Anaheim Ducks (1993-98). With the Sharks and Ducks, Ferreira helped usher in expansion franchises.
 
     Ferreira spent the past 12 seasons as a special assistant in the Los Angeles Kings front office. Fenton finished his NHL playing career with the Sharks in the 1991-92 season and then began working in the Ducks front office under Ferreira in 1993.
