Today’s matchup is between the Minnesota Twins (30-20) and the Chicago White Sox (32-16). The Twins have won 3 of their last 5 games and the White Sox are on a 6 game win streak. The last series these two teams played against each other, the Minnesota Twins come out on top winning 2 of the 3 games.

The Twins are starting Jake Odorizzi (RHP), on the mound who is 0-1 in 3 starts on the season pitching an 8.10 ERA, 6.20 FIP, .403 wOBA, K% of 19.6%, BB% of 4.3%, 89.4 MPH average exit velocity, and a 1.60 WHIP in 10 innings pitched.

The White Sox are starting Lucas Giolito (RHP), who is 4-2 in 10 starts with a 3.43 ERA, 2.75 FIP, .245 wOBA, K% of 34.2%, BB% of 9.2%, 87.2 MPH average exit velocity, and a 1.03 WHIP in 60.1 innings pitched.

The Twins are the 4th best in the Majors in Relieving Pitching (WAR) while the White Sox are 7th.

On the hitting side, the Twins have a .323 wOBA and a .321 OBP. The White Sox have a .346 wOBA and a .337 OBP. The Twins have 78 HRs this season while the White Sox have 74 HRs.

The Chicago Sox have been hot as of late winning their last six games and now they are going against Jake Odorizzi who struggling so far this season. The Chicago White Sox has Lucas Giolito who is sporting a 34.2% strikeout percentage so I'm not worried about the Twins scoring often in this one. I'm siding with the Chicago White Sox and wouldn't be shocked if they won handily in this one.
