Reynaldo López attempts to compete with Lucas Giolito’s complete game last night

MLB: Cleveland Indians at Chicago White Sox
Tough stuff: López not only faces the AL Central-leading Twins, but White Sox killer José Berríos.

Reynaldo López bump day mood:

For the first time this season, the White Sox are in Minny to face the Twins, who are red-hot with a 33-16 record.

Rey Lo is in search of his fourth quality start in a row tonight. One of López’s biggest struggles is giving up the long ball. Unfortunately for him, the Twins are a home run-hitting team. They have hit five-plus home runs in a game six times so far this season. Here’s to hoping López can keep the ball in the park and be in command for tonight’s game.

The opponent for tonight is the White Sox killer José Berríos. Berríos’s numbers against the Sox are not pretty for us. He is 7-1 with a 2.12 ERA in his nine starts.

Lineups for tonight:

Someone on the Sox is batting .455 with two home runs against Berríos. Who would that be? It’s James McCann ... who is for some reason not in tonight’s lineup.

Twinkies lineup:

Game time 7:10 p.m. CT, on WGNTV and WGN-AM
