The Chicago White Sox and MInnesota Twins face off on Wednesday in an American League Central showdown. The White Sox have won the first two games between these two teams this season. The White Sox have come away with victories in each of the first games of this series.
The Minnesota Twins had swept their last series against the Cleveland Indians, but so far in this series against the White Sox the offense has been an issue. Too often in this series the Twins have left players on base and going forward in this game they are going to need to find a way to drive in those runs or it’s going to be another long game. Nelson Cruz has been the best offensive player for the Twins, but too often he has struck out in key situations.
Are the White Sox squad good enough to win the World Series this season? Coming into this game the White Sox have won six games in a row and they have gotten really good pitching as of late. Over the last four games the White Sox have given up only five runs total. Jose Abreu has been the best offensive player for the White Sox hitting 15 home runs and driving in 48 RBI’s.
Lucas Giolito will get the start for the White Sox and he has been up and down this year sitting with a 4-2 record and an ERA of 3.43. So far this season he has had 83 strikeouts
The under is 9-2-1 in the Twins last 12 games played on Wednesday. The Twins are 2-7 in their last nine road games. The under is 6-1-1 in the White Sox last eight games overall. The White Sox are 13-3 in their last 13 games overall. .The Twins are 6-3 in their last nine meetings in Chicago.
The Twins have struggled in the first two games of this series and there is no reason to believe it’s going to be any different in this game. Look for the White Sox to find offensive success and that will be enough to come away with a victory.
