Gamethread: White Sox at Twins

Who’s Ross?: Ross Detwiler against a power-hitting Twins lineup? What could go wrong?

Time: 6:40 p.m. CST

TV: NBC Sports Chicago

Radio: WGN-720

  • Ross Detwiler gets the start for the Sox tonight. Detwiler will get more opportunities the rest of the season because of Lucas Giolito’s injury. Detwiler’s last start came Sept. 2.
  • Martin Perez takes the hill for the Twinkies. Perez got BABIPed to death in his last outing against the Nationals, giving up five runs in five innings.
  • Tim Anderson is back in the lineup tonight for the Sox. His .332 average is just better than DJ LeMahieu’s .327. Timmy is still looking pretty good for that batting title.
  • Yoan Moncada’s average is up to .310, but his OPS is much higher than Tim Anderson’s. Timmy’s is at a respectable .857, while Moncada is enjoying a .903-OPS season. Just think what will happen once (if?) Timmy walks more.
  • Lineups:

Anderson and Jiménez both with first inning hits. They’ve been playing quite well.

Is every ex-Sox going to hit a home run against us this season?

That got out of hand in a hurry.

Eloy defended that double nicely! Nearly threw Arraez out at second.

And now he’s halfway to the cycle. OPS up to .811.

Therapist: Ryan Goins hitting with the bases loaded can’t hurt you.

Ryan Goins: Pops up a pitch above his eyeballs.

There goes the “Colomé should only be used in save situations” argument …
