Minnesota Twins vs Chicago White Sox – 6/22/15 MLB Fantasy Sports, Baseball Picks, Odds & Predictions
It will be an AL Central matchup for MLB mock draft managers to catch on TV as the Minnesota Twin battle the Chicago White Sox. The teams begin play from Minnesota on Monday June 22nd at 8PM Eastern Time and follow the scoring results from your rosters over ESPN2 TV
The Chicago White Sox are hoping to gather some momentum after winning the final two games of a weekend series with the Texas Rangers. The White Sox bats have been ice cold. Even in victory they could only push across three runs on Saturday and Sunday. The win on Saturday broke an eight game losing streak. The White Sox have scored a total of 12 runs total over their past eight games. The team is 28th and third worst in the Majors in runs per game (3.41) and batting average (.237). The bad part is the pitchers don’t hit in the American League and Chicago uses a DH.
Minnesota has slipped in the standings of the AL Central as the club is 37-32 and trails the Kansas City Royals by five games in the loss column for the lead in the division. The Twins enter play on a two game losing streak scoring a total of just one run in their final two games against the Chicago Cubs.
