Chicago White Sox vs. Minnesota Twins Preview

The playoffs may be a pipe dream for the Twins, who are 11 games out of first place, but they have won 4 straight and the beat the White Sox yesterday.

In yesterday’s game the Twins beat the White Sox 7-6.

This season the White Sox have an O/U record of 46-51 with a run-line W/L record of 57-44 and the Twins have an O/U record of 50-46 with a run-line W/L record of 55-46.

On the season the Twins are 23-30 at home and the White Sox are 28-25 on the road.

Before losing yesterday’s game the White Sox had won 5 straight against the Twins.

Liriano (3-10, 5.31 ERA) makes his first start in Minnesota tonight and in his last game facing the Twins he gave up 7 runs in 2 innings in a loss. Nick Blackburn (4-6, 7.99 ERA) goes for the Twins tonight and he also struggled in his last outing giving up 8 runs in 4 innings in a loss to the White Sox. 


Blackburn has lost 3 straight facing the White Sox with an ERA over 11.00.

Tonight the Twins look to match their longest winning streak of the season with a win tonight.

Chicago’s A.J. Pierzynski went deep in yesterday’s loss and he is hitting .356 lifetime facing Blackburn.

Blackburn will be facing a solid White Sox offense that ranks 6th in the Majors in runs scored.

In some betting trends for this AL Central match up the White Sox are 2-7 in their last 9 road games, 1-7 in their last 8 road games vs. a right-handed starter, and they have an Under record of 5-2-2 in their last 9 road games.

The Twins are 4-0 in their last 4 home games, 2-5 in Blackburn’s last 7 starts as a home underdog, and they have an Over record of 8-1 in their last 9 games.

In the last 5 games between these 2 division rivals the posted total has gone over 5 times.

Jason’s Pick: Tonight I think Liriano will be the pitcher the White Sox wanted to trade for, as he will have a good start and Chicago will win.
