Chicago White Sox catcher Ramon Castro suffered a broken right hand when he was hit by a pitch while catching in the top of the eighth inning Saturday.

Minnesota Twins second baseman Alexi Casilla was batting when Castro missed a Mark Buehrle pitch with his glove and it hit his right hand. He was immediately replaced by A.J. Pierzynski.

Castro was charged with a passed ball on the play.

Pierzynski doubled in the ninth and scored the winning run as the White Sox snapped a nine-game skid to Minnesota with a 4-3 win.
