Game 5: Twins at White Sox

Know Thine Enemy: South Side Sox

I'm not entirely sure how to feel right now. The Twins are... good? Yeah, they were taking walks for days against the Royals, but last night they just needed a little timely hitting and some good defense to beat the White Sox. Unfortunately, holding the opposition to 3 runs or fewer isn't sustainable, but let's just enjoy the good times while they last.

Adalberto Mejia is making his first career start and second career appearance this afternoon. The lefty was acquired in the Eduardo Nunez trade last year and though he's not going to be a star, he was considered to be ready for the major leagues and in time should be a solid piece at the back of the rotation.
