White Sox, Twins open 5-game series with doubleheader

CHICAGO -- With six weeks remaining in the regular season, the Minnesota Twins find themselves in the thick of the American League playoff race. The Chicago White Sox, meanwhile, are reduced to playing the spoiler role.

The Twins enter their Monday doubleheader against the White Sox having won four straight after sweeping three from the Arizona Diamondbacks, capped by 12-5 victory on Sunday when the Twins scored nine runs in the first inning.

Now, they are looking to extend their winning streak with a five-game series against the White Sox, who have won just two of their last eight games. The Twins will be without third baseman Miguel Sano, who was placed on the 10-day disabled list Sunday due to a stress fracture in his left tibia.
