The Minnesota Twins and the Chicago White Sox face off on Wednesday at Target Field for game two fo their series.
The Minnesota Twins jumped out to an early lead on Tuesday but they were unable to hold on as they took the loss on Tuesday. Kenny Vargas hit a home run, Jordan Schafer had three hits, and Daniel Santana had two hits as the Twins scored three runs on nine hits. Starting pitcher Tommy Milone allowed five hits and three earned runs while striking out three lasting just 3.2 innings to not factor in the decision as Lester Olivares took the loss.

Dayan Viciedo and Tyler Flowers each hit home runs and Paul Konerko had a hit as the White Sox scored six runs on 10 hits.
