Tuesday MLB features the Minnesota Twins taking the field with the Chicago White Sox.
The Chicago White Sox put everything together Monday in an 8-4 victory at Minnesota. Chicago starter Lucas Giolito was charged with three runs on five hits and two BB over six frames to get the win.

The White Sox racked up 13 hits and walked four times with Matt Davidson going 2-5 with a homer, three RBI’s and two runs while Jose Abreu had two hits, drove in two and scored followed by Tim Anderson with an RBI and run.
The Twins have tabbed right hander Ervin Santana as Tuesday’s starter at the White Sox. Santana did not get a decision in a 15-8 (ND) win against Detroit with seven runs given up over four frames.
The Minnesota Twins fell behind Chicago early and never caught up Monday. Chicago starter Stephen Gonsalves gave up four runs over 1.1 innings to get the loss with Trevor May and Addison Reed allowing a combined three runs.
The Twins logged three hits and three bases on balls with Max Kepler going deep while Jake Cave homered, knocked in two and scored twice.
The White Sox have called up Michael Kopech to make his MLB debut against Minnesota. Kopech is 24-22 in 85 appearances with a 3.05 ERA.
Minnesota are 5-1 in their last 6 overall and are 18-37 in their last 55 road games. Chicago are 4-1 in their last 5 overall and Over is 5-1-1 in Chicago last 7 overall. Under is 6-1-1 in the last 8 meetings.
I am seeing Berrios pop up as a possible starter for Minnesota but the bottom line is Kopech is an unknown quantity so something small on the Twins…
