Greetings from Target Field, where it’s overcast and very warm as the Minnesota Twins prepare for game two of a three-game series against the Chicago White Sox. It’ll be righty Jose Berrios (4.04 ERA, 3.99 FIP in 111.1 innings) on the mound for the Twins, while the White Sox will counter with lefty Derek Holland (6.05 ERA, 6.40 FIP in 129.1 innings).

More on that in a bit.

Tuesday night’s win guaranteed the Twins victory in the season series, as they moved to 10-7 with just two games remaining between them and the White Sox. The Twins have more wins against the White Sox than any other team this season -- that isn’t terribly shocking given the schedule’s tilt to divisional play -- but they’ve also beaten the Royals eight times (8-4) and they have six wins against the Indians (6-10).

The Twins also have a chance to double their win total from July. They went 10-15 in July, and with a sweep of the White Sox would finish with a 20-10 mark in August. The Twins haven’t had a 20-win month since May 2015 (20-7), and only won 17 games combined between August and September last season.
