The Chicago White Sox and Minnesota Twins face off on Wednesday in an American League Central showdown at Target Field. The first game of the series the White Sox were able to win, but the second game the Twins were able to get some revenge.
The Twins finally got that monkey off their back by winning their game on Tuesday night against the White Sox. The Twins had lost six games in a row and their biggest issue has been the way the offense has performed. Over the last eight games only once has the Twins scored more than three runs, and in that game they only scored five runs. The star of the show for the Twins offense has been Nelson Cruz who continues to hit home runs.
On the other side of this matchup is the White Sox who hopes to win a big game against their in division rival. The White Sox had won six games in a row before they lost on Tuesday. Jose Abreu has been the star of the show for the White Sox hitting 12 home runs and driving in 32 RBI’s. In this game the offense needs to get back on the right track.
Reynado Lopez gets the start for the White Sox and coming into this game he sits with an 0-1 record and an ERA of 9.00. IN his first start against the Twins this year, Lopez didn’t make it out of the first inning.
On the other side of this matchup is jose Berrios who will get the start for hte Twins. Coming into this game Berrios sits with a 2-3 record and an ERA of 4.75. So far this season Berrios has really only looked good in one start.
The White Sox are 12-2 in their last 14 games on grass. The White Sox are 11-2 in their last 13 games on the road. The Twins are 10-3 in their last 13 games played at home. The under is 8-2-1 in the Twins last 11 games played on Wednesday. The Twins are 11-1 in Berriors last 12 stars against the White Sox. The White Sox are 4-10 in their last 14 meetings in Minnesota.
These are two pitchers who haven’t been great and both offenses are going to run up the score in this game. Look for both teams to run up the score and for this game to go well over the posted total.
