White Sox are Struggling Lately

The Minnesota Twins and the Chicago White Sox meet at New Comiskey Park on Wednesday night. The new season is bringing far different results than last year for manager Paul Molitor’s club. The Twins are 8-4 away from home, and they look to add to that success Wednesday night. Last year the Twins were 29-52 on the road.

Minnesota has won five of its past six road games, including three in a row. The Twins are playing with confidence after a dominant 7-2 victory over the White Sox in the series opener Tuesday.

Right hander Phil Hughes will take the mound for the Twins to start this game. Hughes is 4-1 this season with a 4.32 ERA.

White Sox left-hander Derek Holland, who is 3-2, 2.02 ERA. He will oppose the Twins for the second time this year. Hughes outdueled him in the first meeting. Holland allowed two runs in six innings. Holland has not allowed more than two earned runs in any of his first six outings. He is 2-4 with a 4.22 ERA in nine career starts against Minnesota.

Oddsmakers opened the White Sox as -121-moneyline favorites versus the Twins, while the game’s total opened at 8.5. The moneyline has held steady but the total has inched up to 9.

Minnesota was a 7-2 winner in its last match on the road against the White Sox. They won as -107 favorites, while the total score of 9 made winners of PUSH bettors. Byron Buxton is coming off a three-hit performance. That matched a career high and he has hit safely in nine of his past 12 games. Kennys Vargas also will try to stay hot. He has clubbed home runs in each of his past two games.
