The Minnesota Twins and the Chicago White Sox will both be gunning for a victory on Wednesday when they meet at Guaranteed Rate Field.

Right hander Ervin Santana will take the mound for the Twins to start this game. Santana is 13-7 this season with a 3.33 ERA.

Starting this game for the White Sox will be James Shields. The right hander has a 5.72 ERA to go along with a 2-4 record this season.

Santana has a chance to match his best win total since 2010 – when he won a career-high 17 – after defeating Arizona his last time out. He limited the Diamondbacks to three runs in six innings for his third quality start in four outings this month. The 34-year-old spun 15 scoreless frames over two starts versus Chicago in April but was roughed up for six runs and a season-high 10 hits in five innings in a rematch June 20, which left him 11-8 with a 3.68 ERA lifetime against the White Sox.

Shields entered August with a 6.19 ERA but he’s been a bit better this month, tossing back-to-back quality starts before yielding two runs in 5 1/3 innings at Texas on Friday. The California native controlled the Twins through six frames in a solid outing earlier this year and he is 8-8 with a 4.20 ERA in 22 career starts versus Minnesota. Brian Dozier has enjoyed loads of success against Shields, going 12-for-32 with four homers and five doubles.

Oddsmakers currently have the Twins listed as 146-moneyline favorites versus the White Sox, while the game’s total is sitting at 10.

The Minnesota Twins continue to showcase power up and down the lineup and hope their bats stay hot when they continue a five-game series at the Chicago White Sox on Wednesday. With three more home runs in Tuesday’s 4-1 victory, the Twins have produced 17 long balls in their last six games and are averaging more than two per contest during their 13-4 run.

The surge has Minnesota holding down a half-game lead over the Los Angeles Angels for the second wild card in the American League. An unlikely power source has emerged in the Twins’ homer-happy stretch, as light-hitting shortstop Jorge Polanco – who had seven career homers in 172 games prior to the series – has gone deep in each of the first three games versus the White Sox. Chicago still had an encouraging night with prospect Lucas Giolito spinning six promising innings in his debut with the rebuilding club. The 23-year-old Giolito will be followed up on the mound by 35-year-old James Shields, who starts Wednesday for the White Sox opposite Minnesota star veteran Ervin Santana.

Chicago lost its last outing, a 4-1 result against the Twins on August 22. Bettors who backed the Twins at -131 on the moneyline won on the day, and the total score (5) sent UNDER bettors to the payout window.

In their last action, Minnesota was a 4-1 winner on the road against the White Sox. Bettors on Minnesota at -131 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (5) sent UNDER bettors home happy as well.
