Know Thine Enemy: South Side Sox
Today, The Twins have Fransisco Liriano toeing the mound to face off against the team he no hit last May. This will also be Kevin Youkillis’s White Sox debut.
It’s the first place White Sox facing off against the last place Minnesota Twins. Fransisco Liriano has looked like he’s back, again this month. He has a .945 WHIP, and 26 strikeouts in 24.1 innings. Opposing hitters have a .260 OBP against him. The Twins need him to continue this trend if they plan on flippping him for a prospect or two.
The White Sox have Jake Peavy going tonight. Peavy is quietly putting together a pretty good little season for himself in the South Side. He has a 2.74 ERA to show for it to go along with his 6-3 record. And as good as Liriano has been this month, Jake Peavy has Sandy Koufax. He has a sparkling 1.91 ERA this month.
As I am writing this, lineups have yet to be posted. If I see it before they are put in the comments, I'll put them up here! Enjoy the game everybody!
