Minnesota Twins at Chicago White Sox

Chicago White Sox taking the first two in this opening series against Minnesota Twins go for the sweep on Thursday. White Sox hand the ball to southpaw Jose Quintana and he will be opposed by Twins newly acquired Phil Hughes. The baseball handicapping numbers point towards White Sox recording they're first series sweep of the season. White Sox have done well recently vs Twinkies winning 7-of-8 meetings and should improve the winning stretch sending a southpaw to the mound as Twins are just 3-11 last fourteen swinging away at a left-handed starter. With Twins on a 7-18 slide in game-three of a series, 1-9 skid on the road, 2-5 last seven away playing on Thursday and hurler Hughes sporting a dreadful 4-11 April team start record stick with Pale Hose.
