The Chicago White Sox have been unable to solve Tommy Milone this season, but they will get another chance when they continue their series with the Minnesota Twins on Saturday.
The Twins have sent Milone to the bump to face the White Sox three times this season, with the lefthander posting a 3-0 record with an 0.87 ERA. Milone has pitched 20 2-3 innings during those contests while only allowing two earned runs and registering a 16-to-4 strikeout-to-walk ratio.
Being on the road has not affected Milone either as he pitched a gem in his one outing at U.S. Cellular Field, allowing only two hits over 7 2-3 innings.
Chicago has not been overly kind to the White Sox as of late, with the team posting a 5-8 record in their past 13 games at home. During that span, though, the White Sox have lost four games by only one run.
Jose Quintana is expected to get the ball for the White Sox, which has been a good sign of late for the club as the team has won the lefthander’s past four starts.
