Donaldson has played much better on the road as well this season. He is producing a slash line of .295/.404/.516 away from Minnesota. If the Sox want to regain a strong lead in the Central division, they need to take care of business at home against a surging Twins team. With the dominant starting pitching and plethora of strong bullpen arms, the White Sox are poised to get back on track this week at home against the fourth-place Twins.
