A familiar face will be on the mound when the Minnesota Twins face the Chicago White Sox Saturday at 12:10 p.m. CT. Francisco Liriano (5-11, 5.37 ERA) starts for the White Sox against his former team for the second time since the Twins traded him in July.
Liriano pitched six innings and struck out eight, giving up 2 earned runs in a win over the Twins on July 31, although he didn't get a decision in the game.
Samuel Deduno (6-3, 3.55 ERA) starts for the Twins. Deduno lost to the White Sox on Sept. 3. He gave up just 2 runs in six innings in that game, but allowed 6 hits and 3 walks.
The White Sox enter the game leading Detroit by one game for the AL Central lead. The Twins enter tied with the Cleveland Indians for last place in the division.
