American League Preview from The Sports Network



Sunday, April 21st (All times Eastern)

Minnesota Twins (7-7) at Chicago White Sox (7-10), 2:10 p.m.

Probable Starting Pitchers: Minnesota - Scott Diamond (0-1, 8.31) Chicago - Gavin Floyd (0-3, 6.32)

(Sports Network) - Joe Mauer aims to extend his hitting streak and give the Minnesota Twins their fourth consecutive win Sunday afternoon when they close a shortened two-game series against the Chicago White Sox.

Mauer has a hit in 10 straight games and is 20-for-43 in that span to raise his average from .222 to .393.

Yesterday, Ryan Doumit scored in the 10th inning when Alexei Ramirez committed a throwing error attempting to get Eduardo Escobar out at first, as the Twins won, 2-1.

Josh Willingham drove in the other run for the Twins, who did not play in Wednesday and Friday's games against the Angels and White Sox, respectively, as both games were postponed. Along with a game against the Mets that was supposed to be played on Sunday, the Twins have three games this season that were postponed.

Twins starter Vance Worley was solid, allowing a run on five hits and two walks over seven innings in a no-decision. Casey Fien (1-1) got the final out in the ninth to pick up the win. Glen Perkins worked around a walk in the bottom of the 10th to pick up his fourth save of the season as the Twins snapped a four-game skid against the White Sox.

"I had it figured out," said Worley. "Today, I pitched. It wasn't me trying to overdo anything out there. It was just going after hitters and trust in my mechanics, thus made pitching a little easier."

Scott Diamond makes his second start of the season for the Twins. The lefty lasted 4 1/3 innings in a defeat to the New York Mets on April 13. He's 2-4 with a 5.19 ERA in six games against the White Sox.

Off to the first 0-3 start of his career, right-hander Gavin Floyd takes the mound for the White Sox this afternoon. Floyd gave up nine hits and four runs in 4 1/3 innings of a 4-3 loss at Toronto Monday. He's 6-11 with a 5.71 ERA in 18 career starts versus Minnesota, but he's won his last two starts after dropping his previous eight in a row.

Chicago blasted the Twins last season by a 14-4 count and won seven of the nine meetings in the Windy City.
