Minnesota Twins Tied in First! Battle with the Chicago White Sox

The Chicago White Sox and the Minnesota Twins are tied in first place with a 63-49 record after the Baltimore Orioles walk-off victory last night against Chicago. With 50 games to go the two teams are deadlocked right now (another Game 163 perhaps??). The two teams start a 3 game series tonight in Chicago that seems a little bit like playoff baseball. Even without first baseman Justin Morneau, the Twins have been playing good fundamental baseball and are looking to gain some ground in the division. Starting pitcher Kevin Slowey will miss his scheduled start on Wednesday and the Twins plan to start Glen Perkins from AAA. It is a big series and hopefully the Minnesota Twins can take the series. Scott Baker will take the mound tonight vs. Freddy Garcia. Go Twins!
