Prediction and Conclusion

The Minnesota Twins are 6 games behind the Cleveland Guardians in the AL Central and only 3 games ahead of the Kansas City Royals. This gives extra importance to the series against the White Sox, which may put them closer to the top of the division but, at the same time, put their second place in jeopardy. The Twins will go with Jorge Alcala, who is 2-3 for the season with a 1.72 ERA, 31 K, 31.3 IP, and 1.05 WHIP. The White Sox will go out with Chris Flexen, who is 2-7 for the season with a 5.08 ERA, 63 K, 85 IP, and 1.39 WHIP. The Twins have won the last eight games against the White Sox and will keep that winning streak alive tonight.
