White Sox Vs. Twins: Twins Turn To Diamond To Prevent The Sweep

The Twins came into the weekend looking to play spoiler to the White Sox, but they've lost the first two games of the series in lackluster fashion. Tomorrow will see Jake Peavy take the hill for the White Sox against Scott Diamond and the Twins at 1:10 p.m. ET.

Diamond wasn't very good in his last start, giving up ten hits as the Twins lost, 9-1, on Tuesday. Diamond typically gets lots of help from the offense though, as the Twins average a major league-best 7.22-runs per game that Diamond starts.

Peavy has dominated the Twins so far this season, as Minnesota batters are hitting just .135 against the White Sox hurler. He's been struggling since mid-July though, with opposing batters hitting .276 off of him since the All-Star break.

Sunday will be the last time in 2012 that the Twins and White Sox meet. Chicago currently leads the season series, 13-5.
