Pineda hopes to put Twins back on track vs. White Sox

After their four-game winning streak was snapped by the Chicago White Sox in the series opener Monday, the American League Central-leading Minnesota Twins will turn to right-hander Michael Pineda in Game 2 of the three-game series on Tuesday night in Minneapolis.

Pineda (8-5, 4.20 ERA), who missed the entire 2018 season following Tommy John surgery, has arguably been the Twins' most consistent starter over the past two months. He has allowed three runs or fewer in 14 of his last 15 starts and has won two of his past three starts, including a 13-6 victory at Texas on Thursday.

Pineda is 3-3 with a 3.08 ERA in six career starts against the White Sox but is 2-0 with a 2.08 ERA in two starts vs. Chicago this season. Both of those contests -- a 10-3 victory on June 29 and a 6-2 win on July 26 -- came in Chicago. He allowed a combined 10 hits and three earned runs in 13 innings while striking out 13.
