The Twins are 13-3 in their last 16 vs. a team with a losing record and 1-6 in Gibsons last 7 road starts. The White Sox are 6-1 in their last 7 vs. a team with a winning record and 3-7 in Quintanas last 10 home starts.. The White Sox are 1-4 in Quintanas last 5 starts vs. Twins.
The White Sox are playing a lot better than they did earlier in the year and Gibson has been bad on the road. I like the White Sox to get the job done here.
