Game 72: White Sox at Twins

Not to worry, it's only Chris Sale that we have to face today.

The Twins have won 100% of the games I have covered. Also, they've never been televised on FSN. I believe that there must be a conspiracy behind this. Anyway, this game is a rubber match, which I always thought would suck at starting fires, but I digress.

The Twins will counter Chris Sale with last year's ace Phil Hughes, who went 8 innings and gave up just two hits in his last start.

Brian Dozier and Joe Mauer have hit Sale pretty well over their careers, so they could be key players in this game.

You can't watch the game on FSN unless you are a super hacker, but you may find it on MLBN. On the radio it's Go 96.3 and TIBN, but you probably knew this.
