Result: Loss
10* Minnesota (8:10 ET): The White Sox have surpassed even the most optimistic projections for 2020 as they lead the AL Central w/ a 30-16 record and have a +77 run differential after winning the L4 games. They are also a MLB-best +12.4 units at the pay window. However, still hot on their heels are the Twins, last year’s division champ. Entering this series, the division deficit is just one game for Minnesota and they have taken two of three in each of the previous two series between the teams.

Minnesota is also favored for Monday’s opener, which may surprise some given how hot the White Sox have been recently. However, the Twins just swept a pretty good Cleveland team and are 9-2 L11 themselves. They send Jose Berrios out to the hill tonight. Berrios has faced Chicago twice in 2020 and the Twins are 2-0 in those games. The last one saw him go six innings and allow just 1 ER on 3 hits. Berrios has allowed 3 ER or less in four consecutive starts as well as six of the last eight.

Since losing two in a row to the Twins to start September, the White Sox have won 8 of 9. But looking at who they’ve faced - KC, Pittsburgh and Detroit - they clearly should have won most of those ballgames. Beware Dylan Cease’s 1.305 WHIP. I say that about Monday’s starter because he has a relatively low ERA, but that WHIP says he’s been a bit fortunate not to have allowed more runners to score. Cease does not strike out many opposing hitters nor has he made it a full six innings in any of the L3 starts. This will be his first time facing Minnesota since a disastrous outing over a year ago when he allowed 8 runs in 2 IP. 10* Minnesota
