Chicago's current rough stretch came at a particularly bad time since it coincided with a series against Detroit -- the White Sox lost all three games to the Tigers over weekend and lost their grip on first place in the AL Central. The White Sox return home Monday hoping to rebound from a road trip on which they lost seven of 10 overall, including the last five.

They have a good opportunity to right the ship when they start a series against the Twins, who are the Central's last place team.

Gavin Floyd (7-8, 4.54 ERA) returns to the rotation to start for Chicago, while the Twins will go with Francisco Liriano (3-9, 4.81).

Game Date & Time: Monday, July 23, 7:15 p.m. CT
