Can Jesse Scholtens Pick Up A Win?
On the mound for the White Sox will be Jesse Scholtens and he sits with a 1-8 record and an ERA of 4.44. In his last start against the Detroit Tigers he went five innings giving up eight hits and three runs. The White Sox are averagign 4.12 runs while their pitching is giving up 5.19 runs per game.

Shane’s Free Pick
I don’t trust Scholtens and he’s going to be lit up in this game. The Twins bats have been inconsistent this season but they are going to have no issue running up the score here. The Twins will score seven or eight runs here. The White Sox’s offense is going to really struggle here, and the Twins will get the job done.
