berrios sharp vs. white sox as twins win second in a row


the tables have been turned in this series between the twins and white sox.the twins were coming off a four-game sweep at the hands of the indians, during which their lack of depth in the starting rotation was exposed and the club scrambled for starters. cleveland took advantage to knock the twins out of first place in the al central division.but now, with top starters ervin santana and jose berrios in play this week, they have run into a white sox team with injured starters and a leaky bullpen.the result has been two victories in two days, including their 4-2 victory over the white sox on wednesday. the twins now have a chance to sweep chicago in the three-game series and finish their 11-game homestand with a 5-6 record, which was doubtful at the start of the series.the twins took control

state of the rotation: twins need pitchers for thursday, saturday


the twins need starters for thursday against the white sox and saturday against the indians.indications are that righthander nick tepsech will get the ball thursday for the series finale against the white sox in chicago. tepesch was knocked out in the second inning saturday against boston, but it was his first game in over two weeks and the twins want to see what he does when he’s on a regular five-day schedule.that still leaves the twins with a need for saturday at cleveland. the two candidates are lefthander adalberto mejia and righthander jose berrios. mejia is coming off a poor outing for class aaa rochester, raising the possibility that berrios, their top starting pitching prospect, gets the nod.sunday, berrios improved to 3-0 with a 1.13 era for the red wings, giving up one run over

as twins face chris sale, little from last time seems familiar


three thoughts from the weekend in minnesota sports:• what a difference a year makes. the pitching matchup sunday between the twins and red sox — ervin santana vs. chris sale — was the same matchup exactly one year earlier.there were, shall we say, a few differences. it was twins vs. white sox a year ago, when sale pitched for chicago. the twins entered the game with an 8-21 record, while the white sox were 20-10.the final score was indicative of those records as sale and the white sox trounced the twins 7-2. the twins also lost the santana-vs.-sale rematch on sunday — with a close game getting out of hand in the ninth inning — but their record dropped to a much more respectable 15-14 in the process.the last three pitchers to work a year ago for the twins — fernando abad, kevin jepsen and

twins resemble contenders by polishing off white sox


a week ago, the twins left chicago grumbling after losing three of five games to the white sox. they should be bullying a youthful white sox team while strengthening their grip on a wild-card spot.but there was a silver lining. they were scheduled for eight games with chicago over an 11-game period. that meant three more chances against the white sox at target field.and the twins took advantage of mistakes by starter james shields and rode ervin santana’s effectiveness on the mound in a 6-4 victory over the white sox. it’s what a playoff hopeful does against a team out of contention — takes care of business.shields, who has switched to more of a sidearm delivery to spice up his career, lasted only five innings tuesday, giving up four earned runs on five hits and five walks with three strik

next two weeks will help tell us if twins are for real or not


a cynic, or at least a skeptic, might point to the twins’ encouraging 14-12 start with this “yeah, but”: they’ve largely feasted against teams that have struggled, and when they’ve played better teams the results haven’t been great.the twins have played 11 games against teams that currently have losing records (kansas city, oakland and texas) and have gone 9-2 in those games. the twins have also played 15 games against teams that currently have winning records (the white sox, tigers and indians) and are 5-10 in those games.of course, at this point in the season those numbers have a certain chicken-egg quality to them. it stands to reason that those opponents would have losing records if so many of their early games were losses to the twins; same goes for the teams that have winning records






despite dozier's inside-the-park home run, twins fall to white sox


the go-ahead run was at third base sunday, twins infielders were drawn in, and white sox slugger jose abreu waited ominously at the plate. ryan pressly challenged him with one fastball after another, 97 mph, then 98, then 98 again. finally, he tried an 86-mph slider, and abreu swung helplessly. strike three.whew. what a relief. take a deep breath.just one thing. “we always talk about not letting your guard down, making that second out count,” manager paul molitor said. “that strikeout doesn’t do any good if you don’t finish the inning.”and therein lies the problem: pressly may have won the main event, but he lost the undercard. almost before twins fans could relax after abreu stalked away, avisail garcia smacked one of those fireballs into the third row of the right-field seats, a crushing
