Minnesota have a chance to bury the White Sox at home.
The Minnesota Twins and Chicago White Sox have been in a close pennant race for parts of the 2010 season however lately the Twins have been opening up a signficant lead. Currently Minnesota are 4 games up on Chicago and with the White Sox in Minneapolis for a series, the Twins can really bury Chicago deep in the standings.
Tonight’s game between the Twins and Chi Sox starts at just after 8pm ET and the pitching match-up features Francisco Liriano for the Twins versus Gavin Floyd for the White Sox. Liriano is a lefty and Chicago have not done exceptionally well against the southpaws this year as they are a pretty mediocre 16-14 against them.
But what really is the story for tonight’s game is the fact that Liriano has been on fire lately for the Twins as he has won 5 straight decisions to improve to 11-7 on the year.
Minnesota are a tough team to beat at home as they are 37-20 from their home park while Chicago are just 30-30 on the road.
