After exceeding the .500 mark for the first time this season the Chicago White Sox dropped three straight to the Cleveland Indians heading into this weekend with a three-game series against the Minnesota Twins, who are on a two-game win streak of their own.
The weekend is highlighted by the retiring of an all-time WhiteSox great Paul Konerko’s No. 14 by the franchise on Saturday.
The White Sox are currently 18-20 on the year which is good for fourth place in the AL Central and seven games behind the Kansas City Royals for first place in the division. The Twins have been a pleasant surprise this year and are residing in third place in the division with a 23-17 record and only three games behind the Royals.
In the season series the Twins are 5-2 against the White Sox with a four-game sweep where they outscored the White Sox 31-8 over that span.
