Minnesota Twins and the Chicago White Sox will meet again on Tuesday from Target Field. All odds for all games can be found updated at Top Bet sportsbook.
The Twins are definitely playing for next season at this point, and look to have a solid core to build upon. They won yesterday behind 7 runs and 12 hits from their offense even though they’re pitching was not stellar. For Tuesday the Twins will send Nick Blackburn to the mound who is having a terrible season. Blackburn is pitching to a 7.99 ERA in 74 innings of work.
The White Sox had the chance to win on Monday, but in the end they dropped game one to the Twins. Today Francisco Liriano will make his first start against his former team. Liriano is pitching to a 5.31 ERA in 100 innings of work and will look to pitch well versus his former mates tonight.
Minnesota is 6-2 in their last eight home games, 2-5 in their last seven games against a team with a winning record, and 21-9 in Blackburn’s last 30 home starts against a team with a winning record. Chicago is 5-2 in their last seven games overall, 2-7 in their last nine road games, and 1-7 in their last eight road games against a right handed starter. Chicago is 8-3 in their last 11 games in Minnesota.
This game has a lot of offense written all over it. Since the White Sox have a deeper bullpen and a better offense will take them as a moneyline favorite at best sports books.
