Twins Vs. White Sox Preview: Phil Humber Looking For First Win Since Perfect Game

After dropping the series opener in a lackluster fashion, the Chicago White Sox bounced back against the Minnesota Twins and took Wednesday's rematch by a score of 6-0. The big story for the Sox is Paul Konerko, who extended his hitting streak to nine games. As Jim Margalus of South Side Sox points out, Konerko is 17-for-30 over that span with a ridiculous .567/.639/.900 triple-slash line, and he is right at the top of the American League leaderboard in multiple hitting categories this season.

Phil Humber (1-2, 5.31 ERA) takes the mound for the Sox, and he is still looking to notch his second win of the season after pitching a perfect game against the Seattle Mariners back on April 21. After a post-perfection swoon, Humber has allowed just three earned runs over his last two combined starts (13 innings), and he will try to help Chicago earn a series win over the struggling Twins.

For Minnesota, Cole DeVries (0-0, 0.00 ERA) will make his major league debut on Thursday night at the Cell. The 27-year-old righty compiled a 4.24 ERA, a 1.157 WHIP, 37 strikeouts and just seven walks over 46.2 innings at Triple-A Rochester so far this season.

Here is some basic information to get you ready for the rubber match of this three-game series.
