Twins/White Sox Game Two Today
Game two of the Twins/White Sox series will get underway this afternoon in Chicago. The Twins will try to square things up with veteran Kevin Correia on the mound against Felipe Paulino.
Both pitchers are in their 30s, but their paths to this matchup differ significantly. Correia was Minnesota's most consistent pitcher last season, his first with the club. He led the team with 31 starts and 185 1/3 innings to go along with a 4.18 ERA. The 11-year vet has made 190 career starts, more than triple that of Paulino.
The White Sox have high hopes for Paulino, whom they slotted second in the rotation to help break up three left-handed starters and is coming back from ulnar collateral replacement surgery that shelved him for the better part of the past year and a half.
Twins manager Ron Gardenhire is approaching a career milestone. He's two wins away from 1000.
First pitch is 1:10 pm, we'll start our coverage at 12:40 with Cory Provus and Dan Gladden on KROC AM.
