The White Sox begin a seven-game road trip on Monday.

The White Sox won their first series in weeks when they took two of three from Milwaukee over the weekend, and they also re-claimed a tenuous hold on first place in the AL Central. They'll begin a three-game series in Minnesota against the Twins on Monday night.
