Twins Looking Inept On The Road

The Minnesota Twins are not exactly lighting the world of fire this season – by which I mean they have the worst record in the American League – but they have been especially bad on the road. The Twins are 2-13 when travelling this season and have been outscored 32-12 during their current three game road slide. Minny will try and regain some respect when they visit the Chicago White Sox Saturday.

Shark Bites
  • The UNDER is 9-2 in the White Sos past 11 games at home.
  • Melky Cabrera went 4-for-five with three RBIs in Game 1 of the series.
  • Chris Sale is 0-4 with an 8.67 ERA in his past four starts against the Twins.

Chris Sale will look to continue his phenomenal start to the season when he takes the mound for the White Sox. Sale is 6-0 with a 1.66 ERA and a 0.81 WHIP this season and has only allowed two earned runs in his past four outings. However, Sale has faced the Twins 22 times in his career and has a 4.15 ERA, which is the highest against any team in the MLB.

After spending the past 15 days on the DL, Ervin Santana is expected to return to the mound for the Twins. Santana has been quietly solid this season, as the righty has given up just seven earned runs in his first four starts. However, the Twins’ bullpen has surrendered nine earned runs after replacing Santana on the mound.
