The Minnesota Twins (30-42, 7.5 GB) will take on the Chicago White Sox (38-35, 0.0 GB) tonight at 7:10 CT with Liam Hendricks (0-4, 7.39) on the hill versus Gavin Floyd (5-7, 5.20).
Hendricks has been struggling to say the least with a 9.92 ERA over his last four starts and it's amazing that he is even in a major league rotation. Just goes to show you how much this Twins starting 5 is really rough this year.
The one thing the Twins have going for them is that Gavin Floyd has an 8 game losing streak against the Twins and he hasn't been pitching well as of late.
After coming off of a winning series against the Reds, Minnesota has some momentum and there's no better team to beat right now than the White Sox as the Twins can gain some ground in the division.
"We've got a long way to go here but (the White Sox are) in our
division and leading our division, so it's a good start to win the
first one," manager Ron Gardenhire told the team's official
website. "Our goal is still just to get to .500 and we have a ways
to go to get there."
