White Sox At Twins: Minnesota Looks To Keep Positive Momentum Going

The Minnesota Twins are starting to come around, despite a largely Triple-A lineup, and have managed to climb back to within single digits in the American League Central race. On Tuesday night at Target Field. . .following their first day off in over two weeks. . .they will attempt to keep the hot streak going as they host their biggest rivals, the Chicago White Sox.

Minnesota has won 12 of their last 14 against Chicago, including two games at U.S. Cellular Field in May. One of those games was Francisco Liriano's no-hitter on May 3, and it looks like the White Sox will be fortunate enough to miss Liriano this time around.

To start this series, Minnesota will turn to right-hander Carl Pavano (3-5, 4.54 ERA). Pavano has been pitching pretty well as of late, allowing just three earned runs over sixteen innings in his last two starts, a victory over Kansas City and a no-decision against Cleveland.

The White Sox will counter with right-hander Gavin Floyd (6-5, 3.89 ERA). The White Sox have lost three of Floyd's last four starts, including his last one on Wednesday, where he allowed three runs on five hits and threw 110 pitches in just six innings in a game that the White Sox lost to the Seattle Mariners, 7-4.

First pitch from Target Field on Tuesday night is scheduled for 7:10 PM Central time. You can head on over to Twinkie Town's world-famous Game Thread to talk about all of the in-game excitement, and then make sure to come back here for your recap when it's over.
