Sox Look For Series Split With Twins

Although it was just one game, it was an important game for the White Sox. Saturday's come from behind victory ended a nine game losing streak against the rival Twins. The other positive from Saturday was the fact that they tied and also won the game on two out clutch hits. Now if the Sox can get Adam Dunn and Alex Rios going the second half of the season could be an exciting one.

Jake Peavy gets the start Sunday in the series finale. Peavy is 4-2 on the season with an ERA of 4.83. This will be the first time Peavy will face the Twins as a member of the White Sox. The right-hander has faced Minnesota in his career. While with San Diego, Peavy faced the Twins twice and has an ERA of 2.84.

The Twins will counter with Anthony Swarzak. Swarzak comes in to Sunday's start with a record of 1-2 on the season and an ERA of 3.71.  The Twins righty is filling in for Scott Baker who is out with a strained right flexor muscle. Swarzak has made three starts for the Twins this season and is 1-1 in those starts. This will be the first time the Fort Lauderdale native will face the White Sox.

The forecast at the time of first pitch is partly cloudy skies with temps near 90 degrees. First pitch is scheduled for 1:10 CST. The game can be seen on CSN.
