The Minnesota Twins and Chicago White Sox meet Sunday in MLB action at Guaranteed Rate Field.
The Minnesota Twins look for a series victory to improve to 2-1 on the season. The Minnesota Twins offense has produced a combined 13 runs in their first two contests, but there’s reason for concern with a pitching staff that’s given up 15 runs. Nelson Cruz leads the Twins with three hits and three RBI while Mitch Garver and Eddie Rosario have combined for four hits and two RBI. Kenta Maeda gets the ball for the Twins, and he was 10-8 with a 4.04 ERA and 169 strikeouts last season. This will be Maeda’s second career game against the White Sox.
The Chicago White Sox are coming off a 10-run performance on Saturday and look to improve to 2-1 on the season. The Chicago White Sox offense has been on fire out of the gate, and they’ve now produced five or more runs in eight of their last 11 regular season games overall. Yoan Moncada leads the White Sox with four hits and four RBI while Eloy Jimenez and Leury Garcia have combined for seven hits and five RBI. The Chicago White Sox didn’t list a starting pitcher at the time this article was published.
The Twins are 61-27 in their last 88 vs. American League Central, 47-21 in their last 68 road games and 1-4 in their last 5 overall. The White Sox are 5-2 in their last 7 games vs. a right-handed starter. The under is 5-2 in Twins last 7 games as a favorite. The under is 4-1 in White Sox last 5 overall. The Twins are 35-17 in the last 52 meetings.
The Minnesota Twins pitching has not looked good in this series at all and that's a major concern when you factor in the struggles at times last season as well. Maeda is also a pitcher who can stink up the joint from time to time and last year wasn't a highlight season. The Chicago White Sox were expected to take a step forward this season with the young talent they have on top of the additions they made this offseason. The White Sox look to comfortable out of the gate.
Give me the Chicago White Sox and the even money.
